Step one.

Brine the turkey overnight.

We used a honey and vegetable broth brine in a cooler.

Step two.

Get a fire started.

Get your hickory wood in the fire if you're not already using just hickory for your fire. Get it up to temp (300*), put your turkey in and let 'er smoke!

Step three.

After the first 1-2 hours, wrap your bird in aluminum foil and reduce the temp to 250*.

I hope it turns out ok. It's kind of a science experiment. I'm using a recipe from Alton Brown from the Food Network. He's a great chef. We are modifying the recipe a bit by how it's being cooked, but his ingredients are always awesome.

Either way, it should be entertaining. I don't know who will get the most out of it though, you or me.:lol:

Step four.

Return every so often and check the grill temp. This is where you wear out your shoes walking back and forth. :laugh: Every 30 minutes or so I'll check the internal temp of the bird. I'm currently at the dreaded stall where the internal breast temp is at 160*. A few more degrees and it'll be done.:thumbup1gif:

Step five.

Retrieve your bird from the grill, peel the skin, carve and enjoy. :fed:

Yeah, it's not quite as pretty as your traditional oven baked turkey, but it was tender, juicy, and very tasty. :thumbup1gif:
