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.

greenbean casserole ready for the oven.

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

carved and ready to eat. Dressing, gravy, rolls, casserole, and cranberries with oranges and walnuts.

Thanks for lookin'.:msn-wink:
