I started our thanksgiving a little early this year i brined a small turkey it was in the brine for 48 hours i got tired and did not get to it after 24 hours so 48 hours after going into the brine i rinsed the turkey and put it into the GOSM at a temp of 350 with apple wood for smoke i smoked the bird for 4 hours at that temp and when the breast temp was 165 i pulled the bird the temp in the thigh was around 173 it looks good i will report how it tastes after work tonight i will be having turkey sandwich's for lunch today

Sure looks good! I'm new to brining myself, so I'm curious how the extra 24 hrs. affected the meat. Mine went about 20.

Fine job with the birds Huey. The extra time in the brine didn't make them too salty?
