Smoked Turkey For Thanksgiving

Ok, has anyone tried smoking a turkey? I am going to give it a try this week and so far this is what I have learned. Smoke the bird 35 minutes per pound (actually called for 30 to 40 minutes so I am going with 35) at a temp of 240 (called for 230 to 250). We have a 16lbs bird so I am figuring a little over 9 hours on the smoker. Internal temp needs to be up around 160 or just a little above and she is done. I also plan on making a brine solution and soaking her for 12 or so. I actually brined a chicken before smoking a while back and man that thing was juicy. After brining I will inject the bird with some spices and maybe cut up a lemon and apple and put in the cavity while smoking. I have smoked a lot of other meats but this will be my first turkey, hopefully she turns out good. Can't imagine it will be much different from smoking a chicken.

I have cooked a turkey in a webber grill for about 15 years using indirect heat from charcoal briquettes. It usually takes about 2-3 hours to cook a 20 lb turkey. The last hour is when I smoke it with wood. I have never soaked it and it is a very juicy bird when finished. I have messed around with diffeternt woods and heat variations and have come up with the way I do it now. good luck!!

Mike that sounds pretty good but I don't think my little Weber grill will hold my turkey. LOL I got the mini version that we keep in the camper. That little grill can cook some good food though.
