Any Birds Being Smoked For T-Day?

SIL got a 12# turkey from work, but they already had the meal set. They are giving the bird to us, along with one granddaughter for the holiday!

The bird will get brined and smoked, with a nice maple glaze at the end. Since I'll have extra room in the pit, I'll do something else as well.

I smoke at least one turkey every Thanksgiving season. This year however, we've gotten about 4 foot of snow on the level. I haven't had time to clear out a path to my Webber. It laterally has a snow-cap on top that is as tall as i am, and I can't get to it through the snow. It'll be only roasted turkey this year. Besides, I'll be enjoying the meal down state with Sprout, P.A.G. and my DGD's and my sons-in-law. No Webber to cook on there.

By the way, your smoked turkey with maple glaze sounds amazing. I usually don't put a glaze on my smoked turkey. On my smoked hams though, well, that's a different story.

Since my wife and her side of of the family like wet turkey she'll be doing her turkey in the oven. A few of us in the family, including myself, like my turkey, traditional, with gravy so I'll be doing a small, pre-brined 12 pounder in the upright drum smoker. I'll toss in a chunk of mild fruitwood for smoke.

Hubby doesn't like Turkey; so we're probably getting a whole chicken stuffed with a fusion combo of traditional and ethnic stuffing.

Doesn't UDS mean Ugly Drum Smoker in your neck if the woods?

I just picked up the turkeys today. They are fresh, Amish raised birds about 12# each. The original plan fell through as the bird was not brought home with the granddaughter.

Yes it does. When I'm in the BBQ only forum people know UDS as the ugly drum smoker. But here in DC most people don't know what a UDS is so I usually use the term 'upright drum smoker' so they get the idea....

Smoked chicken is also good, but I've never heard of smoking a stuffed one. How much time does that add to the cook and what is your choice of wood?

Gonna stuff it with green apples, carrots, onions, little celery. Gonna smoke it with apple wood. Wha'ya think?
