Thanksgiving Turkey
« on: November 20, 2020, 04:32:34 AM »
Good morning, Everyone.

Our local grocer had a coupon for a free turkey with a $100 grocery purchase. It seemed like a good deal, so I came home with a 20 lb bird. That isn't going to be enough, so while that turkey is in the oven, I plan to smoke a turkey breast on the grill. Any suggestions? Several of you were kind enough to provide guidance on cooking temp and wood type on chicken quarters and I plan to use a couple sticks of cherry wood that I have. Any relevant experience in terms of one basket or two, expected cooking time with one or two, etc...

Thanks!

hansonb4 / Bob

Below is a link to a video for a deconstructed turkey cook from the SnS guys, which is what Iím doing this year for a more even cook. Certainly applicable to just the breasts. My favorite rub for turkey is Meatheadís Simon and Garfunkel rub - also a link to that below. Cherry is a great wood for any poultry.
