Delicious. Perfect turkey. Moist, golden brown. Wonderful.[p]Was done a good hour or more ahead of schedule. I guess the long brining DOES speed it up, but a 21 lb turkey at 350 was done in 3 hours. Got up to about 180 leg at my final thermapen poke. [p]Stuffed and happy and no one has even looked at the pie yet. Coming up!

    Your cook is the same as mine...but without the crazy fire you had at the oneset. Did you add wood chips/chunks to smoke your bird?[p]p.s. I'm asking Santa for a small to cook along with my large!

    Peggy,[p]No extra smoke chips. Turkey seems to absorb it pretty intently and that brine gives it such a fabulous flavor it doesn't need anything else.[p]I've got a small on my list also. Already got the prices on it. Just trying to I sent it all to the IRS or do I get the small first. Shouldn't be a hard decision and expect to see the small by the beginning of the year..muuuaaahhh.
