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.

Re: My1st Smoked Turkey

I like SPAM. I jamb a bunch of whole cloves in it and let it roll whole on the smoker. Next morning a few slices in the fry pan are fine by me!

The wife works at a pottery place along with the BBQ store, said she could make one. Think there is a market for them? They would be "custom" Any size, any color you want.

Pigs, I've never smoaked it whole. How long do you usually smoke it for? Sliced I smoke it about an 1 1/2 hours (depending on color).

bigwheel, that's the way I grew up eating it! Also makes one heck of a sandwich with egg, cheese and mayo on toasted bread!

I Polk it full of whole cloves, Takes about two and a half hours with hickory. Never temped it as it's cooked all ready. When it looks good, I wrap and toss in the fridge. You don't have to do the clove thing, I just think it brings more to the party. Don't be afraid of rubbing it down and a little sauce don't hurt at the end.

Re: My1st Smoked Turkey

Well thanks for them Spam smoking tips. Gonna have to snag a can or two. Ya know the last time I got hold of some seems like it say on the label it was made out of Turkey. Could not fault the flavor or texture in the least. Maybe slightly tighter grain as compared to the original. Did not taste eggxactly like the regular variety but was nothing to sneeze at either.
