Reply to "Turkey Reports - 2009"

1: Which smoker: Smokette 0020
2: Turkey size: 21 lbs (Safeway Fresh Turkey)
3: Prep: 36 hour brine, 12 hour rest, 12 hour rub
4: Smoker temp: Asked for 300 averaged about 250 or so, used 3oz apple and 3oz cherry wood
5: Cooking time: 4 1/2 hours at 250 followed by 1 hour foil wrapped placed back in 200 degree smoker
6: Comments: First ever turkey in my brand new cookshack....all I can say is wow. I also did a 24 lbs turkey rotisserie'd on my grill and the smoked turkey was WAYYYY better. Laid butter soaked cheesecloth on top of the breast, but skin still pulled back slightly. Didn't matter meat was very moist. Next time will wrap the turkey in more cheesecloth and see if that helps. Thanks to all on the forums for all of the help!
