Munky - Did you shoot that sucker in the chest first? Looks tasty, but also looks like murder is a foot.

Nah,I didn't shoot it.I ate it! :)
That was a fantastic turkey,not at all dry as I thought it would be.The Hickory was perfect.Best turkey gravy ever.
Next time though it will be a smaller one.I really want to try a brine solution.I'm sure if I ask the butcher he can get me a fresh natural turkey.This one was already injected.
For all the work it was for me to get it done, it was well worth the effort.
But hey weekend off from cooking,I planned it perfectly.
Thanks again everyone,could'nt have gotten it done without ya's :)

Munky.

I do soak my turkeys in a salt brine. But that and only that. I believe it infuses moisture in the meat. As far as flavor, I like the taste of the turkey itself, so additional taste I put in the cavity or on the skin. Most people don't like the skin, so I serve their meat without it. You can put on my tombstone "He ate everyone else's skin). hahaha

Today I am making a sourdough bread to go with my bbq'd turkey.

Thanks for the dinner idea Mbasiszta :)
Baked a few loaves of artisan bread a few weeks ago.
Now I really won't have anything to do.Every man for himself today :)

Alton Brown has a great brine recipe. I have been using it on turkey breasts for several years now. I only buy a breast now after learning that white meat and dark meat have to cooked to different temps to be done.
You're turkey looks great. And yes, turkey makes for great leftovers.
