7 Takes on Turkey

There's a nice article in today's Washington Post on different ways of preparing, including brining, smoking, grilling and injecting. I don't agree 100% with their smoking method (they say to wrap it in cheese cloth), but it's a good read:[p]

  • BluesnBBQ,
    I'm a rookie to smoking, just getting started in the past year with a simple charcoal smoker, and I did a turkey last year with hickory wood but my recipe had me cover the bird with bacon to minimize the overcooking of the skin. This year I was going to try pecan and apple wood but am afraid the bacon is going to mask the flavor. If you don't use a cheese cloth, are their other methods to protect the skin?[p]Thanks.

  • Rookie,[p]Brine the bird, and rub the skin with butter, margarine or olive oil before cooking.
