A Couple Gobblers

The other day I smoked a couple turkeys. They had been in an apple-honey brine for about 14 hours prior to that. Just thought I would share.

Re: A Couple Gobblers

In the past I have done breast side down, but have found I like the look of the birds better breast side up. As for taste, I have not seen a difference. I do ice the breasts for 20-30 minutes prior to putting on the WSM.

The brine I use is this one.

Unfortunately, there were no sandwiches for me. These two birds were for my wife's classroom party. All I received other than a few bites while I carved them were a couple compliments from her students' parents.

Re: A Couple Gobblers

Ahh ok you is cooking for purty...my mistake. I always aimed to try Alton Brown's method of the little tinfoil shield for the breastes sometime but never quite got a round to it. Smart thinking on the ice.

BW this is the type of result you can get by using the ice method

Cappy had done one of these but I couldn't find the link

Re: A Couple Gobblers

Now that is mighty cute. I never could afford any ice but cooked em sitting up like little soldiers for years. Actually aint a bad way to do it. The heat coming up from the bottom spanks em on the coola muy bueno and not on the chi chis too much. It would take a real prevert to come up with that particular artistic design. Good job Cappy.
