Default My 1st Smoked Thanksgiving Turkey

My first smoked Thanksgiving Turkey.
Turned out pretty danged good if I do say so myself, and so did the family.
Not too pretty, the way they injected solution made the skin tear during cooking, but I'm not eating the aesthetics of the bird.
The skin wasn't crispy/crunchy, but it wasn't chewy either, a perfect median of scrumptious flavor.
Juicy, tender and delicious, great smoke/rub flavor.

Happy Thanksgiving Everybody!

I love a fried turkey just about as much as anything but a good smoked one is hard to beat. Looks good.

The skin splitting should not matter for the turkey taste that counts. My elderly aunt baked me a cocoanut cake for my birthday one year and the darn thing fell. She was about to cry so I took a slice and it melted like butter in my mouth. Best cake ever. Can't always go by looks for a lot of things.
