Recipe By Savory Spice Test Kitchen

Whether it's Thanksgiving or the middle of summer, smoked turkey is always a crowd pleaser. You can season a smoked turkey with any of your favorite BBQ rubs. Serve it with sides that also have a barbecue twist, like BBQ street corn, grilled green beans, jalapeno gravy, and fried pies.

Recipe Notes

*For juicier turkey, brine the whole turkey for 1 hour per pound before smoking it; use our Brining Mix and follow the easy brining instructions. Savory's 'Cue Glue helps BBQ seasoning stick better to smoked and grilled proteins and seal in flavor.When preparing and cooking a turkey, be sure to follow proper food safety and handling guidelines.

Ingredients

1 (12 to 15 lb.) turkey, fresh or defrosted if frozen




12 to 15 tsp. choice of seasoning (about 1 tsp. per pound meat)
