I know some of you have seen these pictures. (sorry)
I like to use smoked sausage under the skin on turkeys too..

I brined the birds overnight in a mixture of water, kosher salt, cracked black pepper, onion, garlic, red pepper flakes and bay leaves....

Rubbed the birds with butter and sprinkled with kosher salt and cracked black pepper....

Fired up my drum smoker with a bit of apple and olive wood....

I added some twice baked potatoes after about an hour and a half...

Thanks Jeannie!:thumbs up: great looking grub!

I finally get Hoppi9n John, it's like northern jambalaya with beans in it.

I really like the sausage under the skin trick.

I'm going to to a bomeless stuffed capon later today, I will have to try it there.
