Brining the Thanksgiving Turkey
If you want the turkey to be moist and juicy, the key is brining. Here’s some resources to get you started in the method that will change the way you think about turkey.. FOREVER!
Favorite Turkey Brines
Jeff’s Butter and Rub Mop Sauce
Spatchcocking the Bird
This is a funny word of debatable origin that just means “butterfly” the bird or cut out the backbone so the turkey opens up like a book.
This is a GREAT method since it causes the thanksgiving turkey to cook faster and more evenly.

Whole Turkey Instructions/Recipes
These are our favorite Thanksgiving turkey recipes, hands down and bar none! Be sure to stay in the 12-14 lb range for safety and allow 6-7 hours for a bird that size in the smoker at low and slow temperatures.
It is true that most hams are pre-smoked at the factory but let me tell you.. what you can do at home is far superior and if you take the time to smoke the ham again and even put a glaze on it while it’s smoking, it will blow the socks off of you and your guests. Trust me on this!
