Love a good butt cook but turkey is great. Wanted crisp skin and moist meat so rinsed and left in fridge for a couple of hours uncovered. No oil but healthy rub of Swamp Venom and some of Richardfl's rainbow pepper blend. Cooked over a drip pan with red wine and water mix at 325 indirect for 2 1/2 hrs to 160 internal (this one's 7 1/2#) the wood was 2 small pieces of wild cherry. The skin was great with a real bite and breast very moist. Still can't figure out if I'm a butt or breast man :woohoo: :woohoo:
Going on with the SV and Rfla's pepper
2 1/2 hours later
Sliced and ready (note the juices on the plate) very moist and we already ate the skin.
