Smoked Turkey

From the Kitchen of Jimmy Travis

Ingredients:

Thawed Turkey (weight dependent upon amount of people eating. We figure each person can eat 1/4 pound of turkey), 1 Stick of Butter, 2 Tbsp Brown Sugar, 1 Tbsp Salt, 1 Tbsp Garlic Powder, 1 Tbsp Paprika, 1 tsp Rosemary, 1 tsp Sage, 1 tsp Dry Mustard

Preheat smoker to 275º If you don’t have a smoker, you can use a smoker box and wood chips on your grill.

Cut butter into squares. Place the squares under the skin of the turkey to add moisture to the meat. Mix spices together and rub onto the turkey. Place turkey on the smoker with the breast side up and smoke turkey until internal temperature is 165º. Be sure to place meat thermometer in multiple spots to ensure a safe eating temps. Depending on hot spots on your grill or smoker, you may have to rotate the turkey.
