Smoked Turkey

DSC00346I smoked a turkey for Christmas Dinner and it really turned out amazing. For a moment, forget all you have heard about brining, injecting, rubbing, etc. I just used canola oil, salt and pepper. That’s really all you need – the smoke provides plenty of flavor. It was juicy and smokey. Wanna try it? Here’s how I did it:

Ingredients:

One 15lb Turkey
Canola Oil
Kosher Salt
Fresh Cracked Black Pepper
 

Technique:

Set smoker to 350 degrees. (I use a Big Green Egg – the best home smoker available in my opinion)
Add your favorite wood. (I used apple)
Wash and dry turkey and rub with canola and s+p.
Place in the smoker and cook until internal temp is 165 in the breast.
Remove and let rest under foil for 30 minute – 1 hour.
Enjoy!
