Sorry you had to work today Vix. It's just not Happy Thanksgiving without turkey and dressing... Hope you got some.. I'd just as soon miss my cabbage and black-eyed peas on new years before I'd miss my dressing on Thanksgiving.

I'm stuffed as well. So nice and chilly that we had a fire in the fireplace!
I love it! It is beginning to feel alot like Christmas now with the drop in temps!
Pie I wish I could get motivated to do some Christmas decorating. I love it once it's put up but the prepping drives me nuts.

rhertz I cook my turkey on a smoker for three hours and it turned out great. I think if had left it for six it would have been over cooked. Anyhoo it was great FFNB time for left overs for a few days. Vix glad you got your dinner and I know you will be busy today with the traffic. On to the next holiday and then the new year !

That is why I was wondering why rhertz said he was getting up so early to smoke the turkey. It only takes us about 3-4 hrs. as well and it was a fairly large bird.

Everyone have a great Friday!!! I'm off to my parents house for a weekend of more celebrating and family reunions!

Been awhile since I smoked a Turkey.. I remember it was a butterball we started it late at night.. went all night long.. and it was good.. according to my limited search on the web..

The absolute first step in doing a turkey on a smoker is to pick out a bird that is not the biggest one you can find. The main reason for a smaller bird, 10 to 14 lb. maximum, is the time limitations usually involved. It takes between 6 and 8 hours to smoke a 12 pound turkey and the bigger they get, the longer they take.

When we smoke a turkey we also start it the night before. We take turns getting up and stoking the smoker. We smoke it all night long and they are very good. It is actually my favorite over baked or fried, they'll eat any kind but I do prefer smoked.

Well without going into great detail, there's a difference between grilling and smoking. When smoking, temps run only 225* or so. This is slow cooking like a crockpot. Now if you are willing to jack up the temp to 300-350, then sure you can cook a bird quick. But I have an old iron pit that I can't even pick up one end of. It takes hours to heat up and hours to cool down. I DIDN'T use one of those brinkman smokers. I count on on 30 to 35 minutes per pound. My turkey was large and I smoked it about 6-7 hours.. Whose counting? I've heard that the expensive "green egg" smokers are the best but I never seen one in action.
