Smoked deep fried turkey

I read somewhere about people who smoke their turkey for a few hours and then deep fry it. That sounds really good. Does anyone have any recipes or tips on how to do this?
:eep:

What I've done in the past is set my WSM up, put some lump charcoal in there, light it, with only a couple pieces of smoking wood. I then put the turkey in for a couple hours.

While the turkey is in there, I set up the turkey fryer. I put oil in it and bring the oil up to temp. Upon removing the turkey from the smoker I deep fry it, until it's done.

Best dang turkey I've ever had.

That sounds tasty! What kind of wood do you use in your WSM for turkey?

Bruce, I've thought about that many times but never tried it. Now that I know it can be done, I'm gonna do it!

Why would anyone ruin a smoked turkey by frying it? I hate those things. Every says you haven't tasted mine, but I've tasted 100's over the years and they are all the same - dry, no flavor and all the dark meat burned up. Yuck!! I'll stick with my apple marinated, apple smoked bird - juicy and just full of flavor! =D>

I'll have to second or third it....
You haven't tasted mine. Nothing is even close to dry.
They must have cooked those turkeys to dust. #-o

Mine has come out just fine and jucy , with the perfect skin , all I do is apply Tony Chachere`s Cajun seasoning let stand 30 mins, and I use peanut oil . This year I had had at least 3 others asking me to fry turkey`s for them.

Ive fried turkeys, and Ive had smoked turkey...both were very good, but I think Id rather smoke one than deal with the oil mess..just as good in its own way !
