I had always wanted to try to smoke a turkey, so this year I did. It was fantastic! I will definitely be doing this every year as it was so tender, juicy and delicious. The smoke flavor was not overpowering but just gave a perfect hint of smoke. If you want more smoke flavor, smoke your bird for longer at a lower temperature before increasing it. Always end at least the last hour on a higher temp to make sure the meat is safe to eat.
I’m also including the turkey injector marinade that I created for my smoked turkey. You can use that marinade or another one of your choice. One of my friends just mixes italian seasoning and white wine together and strains it for his injector marinade.
