Smoking a Turkey for Thanksgiving?

November 3, 2008 by · Leave a Comment 

It seems that fried Turkey may not be as popular as it once was, and turkey on a smoker may be coming back for some, and the usual way to cook Thanksgiving dinner for others.

A few imortant things to keep in mind when cooking a turkey in the smoker;

1. The best size to smoke is no larger than 14 lbs, above that, depending on the type of smoker you have, airflow, and consistent temp may be an issue.

2. If your cooking your bird on an offset cooker, consider putting cheese cloth over top of the turkey while it cooks. This will prevent ash and creosote from ruining your Thanksgiving Turkey.

3. Last, but certainly not least, be very careful with the smoke. Turkey is a very mild flavor, so a very light smoke is all it needs.

Below is a segment from my DVD “Backyard BBQ with HomeBBQ.com”, this segment is fixing Turkey. The video itself is from my channel on YouTube.. Enjoy!

The HomeBBQ.com DVD’s can be purchased through www.homebbqvideo.com or Amazon.com

Welcome to our new website, it has certainly been a challenge, getting this together. I apologize for the re-register and realize it has just been 2 1/2 years since we did this before, but this was something that needed to be done to keep up with the times, and as a result of ongoing security concerns.

The cut-over to the new site was premature, due to several sql injection attacks on my site, the latest this morning.

Many new features here, that I think you will enjoy. This web site is now capable of all the new blogging and social craze going on with the web.

What is most exciting about this new website, is we have several contributing to this site now. The authors are as follows:
