Soaked bird for 12 hrs. Took out this morning at 3:30. Injected creole butter and poured honey on outside and rub famous Dave’s bird seasoning on it. Put in smoker on 300 for 5 hrs. Injected again halfway thru and honey glazed it again. Man it’s Fixin be good. Now just waiting on everybody to get here. MIL is cooking a turkey to. Just took mine off smoker at 172 internal. Wrapped in foil.

    Nice let us know how it turns out taste-wise. The first one i did was perfect and hands down the best turkey i ever had. the next two were good but not like the first.

    I did brunch for me and my girls. Hashbrown casserole, breakfast casserole, oyster casserole, bacon, and biscuits. Then I went and watched a thicket until dark. Happy Thanksgiving.
