Easiest Way to Smoke a Turkey for Thanksgiving

Green Cutlery

With a bunch of hungry growing boys to feed, we love to cook a whole turkey whenever possible.  The indirect heat from a smoker gives this turkey a unique flavour profile that you are sure to love!

Prepare the turkey in brine overnight.

1. Brine Your Bird

2. Drain the Brine & pat dry. Season how you'd like! We enjoy a chipotle rub but I also have a delicious herb butter rub you should try!

Light the smoker with briquettes and a handful (about 1/2 cup) of wood chips. Check out the post for the whole recipe!

3. Ready the Smoker
