Spouse Smoked Turkey Saga

This will unfold over the next 24 hours.  The Spouse wants to do her own complete cook.  We ate the last of the frozen smoked turkey from last January, just yesterday.

This is going to be 42 turkey thighs, marinated in teriyaki and smoked with mesquite.

The pic shows the start, and by the way that is our garage and garage fridge, not inside the house :-)

    And to wrap it up.  Harvested off the Eggs after 3 hours at 230-250, and dropped back into the cleaned marinate bucket.  These will be stripped, bagged, and frozen for lunches.

    This batch turned out really good.

    What do you do with all that turkey? Slice it into sandwich meat?

    Strip it into chunks, bag and freeze it.  It is our base lunch and quick meal resource.  What goes with it best?  Salad, with the turkey either hot or cold.

    Here is tonight's dinner.  The little container is for tomorrow's lunch.

    That looks awesome! And as soon as I asked the question my mind starting rolling with all the things you "could" do with a bunch of turkey. Great idea!

    Here is what we do with that much smoked turkey.  We freeze it and use it for months.
