Smoked Turkey

I just finished smoking my first turkey. My daughter received a twenty-two pounder as a gift and she doesn't cook turkeys. I smoked it over apple wood in my water smoker. It took 8 hours 45 minutes, but it got done. There was no preparation or sauce, just cleaned and rubbed with salt and black pepper. I haven't tasted it yet, but I'll let you know if it's edible.:chatter

I was going to stuff the bird with okra, but out of respect for Rick, I decided not to do that. :cheers

Never had okra stuffed turkey, but sounds good to me.
That sure is a handsome bird you got there.

I hear oysters (and other seafood) makes fabulous stuffing for a turkey. I don't know about stuffing a turkey that's going to be smoked, though.

:sunny

Nice looking bird, Morgan.

Ludicious

Well, I sampled the bird last evening and it was ludicious (a cross between luscious and delicious). It was moist and tender, with just a hint of smoke flavor. :wiggly

I didn't use any stuffing because I wanted to smoke to access to the inside as well as the outside (a turkey is not a Klein Bottle, after all). :loltu

My first fowl experiment turned out fine. Now Lee and I have to decide what to do with all that meat. :chin

What to do with all that meat

Oh, Morgan....yum, yum, yum.

You could put it up in portion sizes and freeze it. Then you would have easy meals prepared for quite a while or to take for your 'first night on the road' camping.

But, to save you all that trouble, just throw that sucker in a box with dry ice and ship it to me. I'd be glad to take it off your hands...you've done enough by having to smoke it...that's the least I could do for a friend.:yep

That is such a kind offer. It solves all my logistics problems. :sporty

Still wondering where you got a pipe big enough to smoke a turkey.
