    Apple Wood Smoked Turkey

    I have been craving turkey for a while and yesterday was the day to give in!
    9lb Butterball, unseasoned, unbrined and uninjected (besides from Butterball).


    She's all done and has a good tan!



    Removed both breast lobes and put the wings, legs and thighs in the fridge for something tonight.

    Open faced turkey sandwich with giblet gravy. Yes, that's a gizzard on top, my favorite!

    Wow, no seasonings. First time I have seen you do that.

    Your food always looks so amazing and makes me hungry even if I've just ate!

    Thank you.

    With the mass produced turkeys, 90% of them are injected with broth and water to provide moisture and to help prevent dry poultry and pork. Broth contains a good amount of sodium, so it's basically factory brined. When I buy a fresh all natural turkey, I will brine or inject to add flavor.

    I don't like to season the outside of turkey either. I love how the skin turns golden and crisp!

    I've been hungry for turkey for over a month now......you have'nt helped things Larry! lol I keep putting off buying one because I'll have to do it in the oven, and it's been too darned hot! But you make me wish our grill was still working! I love the dark crispy skin, and bet it tasted as good as it looks!

    Looks awesome.

    We smoked a farm fresh turkey last april. It was the best turkey I have ever had, I will never roast a turkey again, just no comparison.
