    Smoked Turkeys

    So I'm looking for some advice/information. I've had a little success in Smoking Turkey. Now for Thanksgiving I would like to Smoke 12 to 14 Turkeys, to give to family, friends, and a few needy. My Box 50 will hold 4 to Maybe 6 at a time. So I would like to start them on the Wednesday before so I can pass them out and they can reheat them at home on Thursday.

    My dilemma is, will they keep overnight in the refrigerator cooked and will it dry out trying to reheat it the next day.

    Yes I will brine and inject. I also stuff them with Apples, Onions, Oranges and yes a stick of Butter.

    Any ideas and suggestions. I have a month to practice.

      Have you bought the turkeys yet? If not, I would go with big breasts. You will be able to get a lot more on the smoker if your goal is to give it away. With breasts, you can rub and inject. Smoke, bringing to temp, pull, refrigerate. On the day you want to give it away, slice apples and onions and put them on a sheet of foil. Instead of oranges, grate lemon, lime and orange peels for the top. Put it back in the smoker on a low temp. One hour should be sufficient. Skin will not be crispy when recooked. I did something similar for Thanksgiving for Camp Fire volunteers/workers. They loved it but they were really most appreciative of getting a holiday meal. I delivered it in my Cambro and a buddy sliced and served. I didn't actually get to sample it.

            Wow not even near that level. Just a wanta be. Trying to move up one level and do the right thing at the same time. My thought is start 3 or 4am and under cook a little. Deliver them and let the oven finish it off. Still open for idea's. Frozen the last batch so Thats still an option as well.
