So, this year's turkey is aMexican brine and a Mexican road-stand recipe.

I also tossed on a handfull of mesquite chips. I would have liked a chunk, but there wasn't any available. The smoke came and went quickly, so I trust that it didn't get over smoked.

After an hour, the skin started to look really brown already. I tossed on a couple cubes of butter to slick 'er down and mix into the pan juices, then I basted and tented. Here are some results and a link to the Flickr page to follow the progress.

  • One hour later....

    Breast is at 130 and the thigh reads 155ish. The egg seems to want to have settled into 350 degrees instead of 325. Oh well, I'll go with it.

    If you look at the drumstix, it almost looks like Senior Pavo has rolled up his sleeves. Is this an indication that the drums are drying out???? :huh:
