Trying to get a BIG turkey to thaw in time to smoke on sat or sun....
My neighbor 'commissioned' me to smoke this bird after he was impressed with the pork butt I smoked for him.
For some strange odd reason, he says his two girls don't like turkey (....?...?...) and that this bird is just waaaay too much turkey for he and the wife ---- I just don't get it ---- so he said I could take half of it if I smoked it for him!!! He really just wants to get it out of his freezer.... OK --- I'm glad to help out and I love having a reason to fire up the smoker --- I was planning on picking up a turkey breast last week @ $1/#, but a free half a turkey is just as good.
There wasn't a tag on the bird for weight, but I figure its at least an 18#er -- would not be surprised if its actually 19 or 20!!! I'm hoping it will fit on the WSM without any issue --- I think the largest I have done is ~16#. Its already brined and injected - so I'm planning on just doing it bare with the spine removed and just feeding it lots of smoke. I'm thinking it will be just as good or better than the one I did for Tgiving.

I’m excited to try a turkey. Jagerbomber smoked some turkey years back that changed the way I view turkey. It was incredible! Honestly probably 1/2 the reason I wanted to get a smoker was to do turkeys.

Last weekend I did a pork butt for pulled pork overnight, trimmed another butt into lean cubes to make burnt ends, and smoked a couple spatchcock chickens from Costco. Least work was the chickens and they stole the show. So juicy and tender! My smoker is going to be seeing more bird this year, for sure. And some cheese. You guy’s smoked cheeses look amazing!

awesome mike, with cheese I don't want to give out how. I don't use a water pan either. How low does your heat go? needs to be at least 85 or lower

Thanks fellas! I’m just starting to learn, nowhere near what you guys are doing. I haven’t wrapped anything on the grill yet aside from covering those burnt ends once they were in the sauce.

I just got my first roll of butcher paper delivered yesterday. (New guy)

I did a brisket a few weeks back. What’s next? Jalapeño poppers? Shotgun shells?

Do you cook it in a foil boat? How do you maximize the surface area exposed to the smoke?

Make the loafs in a bread pan to keep them on the smaller side. A 1.5# of burger and 1# of sausage with a good amount of filler/mixins fills two pans nicely. My BiL will make a monster 3# 'meat baby' when he does meatloaf --- he gets lots of smoke on the outside, but the inside is lacking - I prefer the smaller loafs. Put saran wrap in the pans before filling so you can wrap the loaf --- put them in the freezer for a while to firm up - unwrap and apply rub all over..... You can start them out still frozen (partial or fully) to maximize smoke too. Make sure you get a perfed pan to keep it from sinking into the grates.

~2 hours in and IT of 110.....
Man - I wish it could be done at that color..... but it WILL get darker before it finishes....
Yeah --- that bird is pushing the limits of the 18" WSM - any bigger and I'd have to quarter it down....

First picture is perfect for a magazine's Thanksgiving Special Edition cover.

Second picture is perfect for Smokers quarterly.
