Well, I have to say this turkey was not one of my better efforts.:blushing: It was very moist and tasted good, but it was about a "2" in the looks department.:blushing:

This was a fresh, never frozen bird. I put a thin layer of seasoned butter under the skin, rubbed the outside with butter, and then a light dusting of seasoning.

wrapped in cheesecloth soaked in melted butter and apple cider vinegar.
Now into the drum using apple wood for smoke. Pit temp of 325.

a pan of dressing to go into the smoker to cook once the turkey is pulled and resting. will up the pit temp to about 360 for this.

Turkey after 3 1/2 hours. I left the cheesecloth on too long and the skin color turned out very uneven.:smack: :oops:
