Turkey- Glorious Smoked Turkey!

Yesterday the turkey hung out in the cooler in a juicy brine.

Today it hung out in the smoker until it was cooked to perfection!

I think we have discovered our new favorite turkey cooking method.

Turkey brine: apple juice, orange juice, water, coarse salt, brown sugar, nutmeg and cloves. And a curious kid.  It was cold enough that this just sat out on the deck during the day and overnight. 

How I love my Bradley Smoker!  This was just a few hours in at 240F and maple wood chips pucks.

And even more hours later.

Eight and a half hours later we had turkey perfection!  Moist and delicious.  Yum!
