Smoked Turkey is so verstile from picnics to sandwiches and even Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner. This will become a family favorite in a hurry!
1 Turkey (12-16 lbs.)
If it is a frozen Turkey always follow directions for defrosting.
Set grill for Smoke (170-200) it will take 30-40 minutes of smoking time per pound. (There is no need to turn or rotate your Turkey) Use your meat thermometer in two locations. Remember the bones heat up more than the meat so try to avoid direct contact. Smoked turkey has a different color and texture than oven roasted turkey. The meat may appear pink and have a smoother texture. This is normal. The smoking process causes a chemical change in turkey that causes this color change. As long as the turkey registers a temperature of 165 degrees F it is safe to eat no matter the color.
Remove from smoker wrap in tinfoil and a towel and let stand in the cooler for 20 minutes. Remove to a platter carve and enjoy!
