    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 (12 lb) whole turkey



    Smoke Liquid


    1. 1
      Mix brine ingredients in a cooler--I use a smaller Coleman cooler--and add defrosted turkey (ensure the turkey is fully covered by the brine mixture); let sit for up to 24 hours. Note - The temperature in the cooler should be 33°-40° to prevent bacterial growth. If the temperature begins to get too high, stir ice into the brine until it has dropped back to the desired range.
    2. 2
      Remove turkey from brine and pat dry.
    3. 3
      Mix Rub ingredients and coat turkey inside, outside, and under the skin. Note - Use your hands to peel the skin away from the body then apply the rub. Use toothpicks to hold the skin down while cooking.
    4. 4
      Use a chimney starter to heat some charcoal and place it in the bottom of your smoker.
    5. 5
      Pour smoke liquid into the water pan of the smoker and place the cover on the smoker until he internal temperature reaches 250°-300°.
    6. 6
      Insert a meat thermometer into the thigh of the turkey, place it on the top rack of the smoker, and cover with the smoker lid.
    7. 7
      Add wood chips or chunks to the smoker through the side door.
    8. 8
      Let sit, adding more chips every hour (or as needed) to keep the temperature between 250°-300°.
    9. 9
      Turkey is done when the internal temperature reaches about 165°. The cooking time should be roughly 20-30 minutes per pound.
