    Thanksgiving Smoked turkey Meathead style

    I am still sort of a newbie.. but last week found the recipe from Meathead...
    I had smoked a couple of turkeys before but was skeptical of the drippings (for good southern gravy)
    So I baked a turkey along with smoking and collecting the drippings...
    Well I made the gravy from both drippings and it is pretty darn awesome...
    The smoked turkey was a winner with the family and guests..
    And the 2 turkeys.. well there were lots of leftovers and I will still enjoy some things I set aside like legs and wings. ;-)

      That’s beautiful. Enter the picture in the contest!


        Awesome! What was the temp when it came off and how long did it cook?

          Thanks ...
          I smoked this in my WSM ... my temp goal was to cook at 325, but for some reason I could not get the temp above about 275 so it took longer... about 4 hrs
          It was very juicy and the drippings made for a very good gravy... comparing it to my traditional from the baked turkey there was very little difference...

          The WSM rocks. I have a KBQ and a WSM 22.5. You can not beat the WSM for convenience. I use a stoker 2 on it.

        Great pic and cook! KBARD


          So good! Dang I want some turkey.


            Awesome turkey!




                Great looking turkey! And those crispy wings are than bacon. There, I said it.


                  Looks great! Congrats!
