My1st Smoked Turkey

Smoked this bird mainly to be used for a food day at work this week. I'll be doing a smoked turkey noodle.

I decided to use the 22.5" WSM for this cook. Used the blue bag with a chunk of apple and a chunk of oak.



This bird was 8% enhanced, so I decided to simply rinse and pat dry. I did put a stick and a half of butter, minced garlic, onion and salt/pepper in the cavity then put on the smoker at 250*.



I got a bit snackish, so I decided to put some Spam on to. Oh how I love smoked Spam!




The WSM held steady the entire cook and the bird was done after 5 hours, which is what I was guessing it would take (Breast = 160*, Thigh = 174*). I loved the color and the meat was real juicy too.




Never really gave thought to dinner until the wife asked, so I made up some mac & cheese and the wife made some garlic bread...add some turkey and there you have it!

Thanks Pigs. I got this plate a couple of years ago from Hallmark. These plates were sold at Hallmark Gold Crown stores maybe 2-3 years ago. You could always check to see if a store still has any on display. I snagged a couple when they came out.

****Disclaimer***** I work for Hallmark*******We have items that come out seasonally, so stores may not have anymore.
