Holiday turkey fads may come and go but smoking the turkey is here to stay - and for good reason. Smoking the turkey will give your previously boring and dry turkey new life, in a manner of speaking. Your guests will keep coming back for more of the juicy, amazing smoked flavor your bird will offer. Not to mention smoking your turkey will also leave your oven free for the rest of your amazing dishes and allow you to get dinner on the table sooner, despite the longer cooking process.
Here are the 10 things you'll need to get your turkey smoking!
1. A Good Smoker
Depending on your budget and fuel source, you've got options! The Masterbuilt 40" Digital Electric Smoker and the Masterbuilt 30" Digital Electric Smoker are both great electric choices. Both can cook 2 whole turkeys at a time! The 40" version has 975 sq. Inch of cooking space, a viewing window, and remote control. The 30" version is more moderately priced but is a best seller in it's price range.
If a propane smoker is what you're looking for, take a look at the Masterbuilt 40" Propane Smoker is just as big as it's electric cousin and comes with a 15,400 BTU stainless steel burner and temperature gauge. Smoke Hollow's 38-Inch Propane Smoker is similarly priced, well rated, and has a 20,000 BTU burner.
