Ahumados de pavo----Smoked Out Turkey
« on: March 01, 2012, 07:19:17 AM »
First of many guys and gals  :)

Ahumados de pavo----Smoked Out Turkey

Turkey breast thawed (skin on)

One food syringe w/ melted butter and garlic powder plus a dash of salt and pepper

Smoker

Hickory wood


When turkey is thawed, treat him like he has rabies.  Pump him up w/ that food syringe all over

Place in smoker

in the liquid pan fill w/  half dos equis lager especial and half water. Refill when needed...about every 3 hrs maybe less

Smoke until internal temp is 165 deg (about 6-8 hours depending on weather and size of the bird)

let rest for a bit

Slice and serve w/ just about anything..but things of mention are stuffing w/ turkey gravy.  O.M.G. Rice, mashed skin on taters and turkey gravy etc.....

I <3 Ahumados de pavo

OINK!

YUM!
My wife smokes a minimum of two turkeys a year on the Weber. She's become such an expert she makes it look as easy as grilling hamburgers. She uses the same system for smoking beef roasts.
Her wood of choice for turkey is cherry, and hickory for the beef.
Don't bother walking a mile in my shoes. That would be boring. Try spending 30 seconds in my head. That will freak you right out!!

I'll be coming back for this post sometime in ...oh...   May?     Right now my smoker is under a snowbank.

Looks delish...

On particularly rough days when I'm sure I can't possibly endure, I like to remind myself that my track record for getting through bad days so far is 100% and that's pretty good.

WW, you are seriously lacking in dedication! I brushed 7" of snow off the gas BBQ and grilled some pork steaks last evening!
