Sweet Smoked Turkey
• 1 whole turkey
For each gallon of water, add the following:
• 1 cup Tenderquick or other liquid meat tenderizer
• 2 cups apple juice
• 1/2 cup brown sugar
• 1 Tbsp. Liquid Smoke
• 1/4 Tbsp garlic powder
• 1/4 cup soy sauce
Use hot water to dissolve the ingredients. Make one gallon to start with and omit the pepper, because it clogs the syringe.
Inject the bird all over.
Next, add the pepper and submerge the bird in the mixture. A five-gallon bucket works well. Make enough to cover the turkey and soak in a refrigerated area for three to four days.
Before smoking, air dry for one hour and rub with brown sugar.
Smoking time will vary depending on temperature and the size of bird. Expect to smoke your bird between five to eight hours.
