Preparing the Smoker
4

Set your smoker for 250-275

5

Use whatever smoking wood you prefer, we used apple because of its mild and sweet flavor

6

We used a ceramic turkey stand to add extra flavor – they are around $15 on Amazon and a great way to keep your turkey moist

Smoking the Turkey

Place your turkey in the smoker and plan for around 20-30 mins per pound

8

Baste your turkey every hour – while doing so, check the internal temperature using a meat thermometer

Once the internal temperature of the meat reaches 165 degrees remove the turkey and let rest for 5 minutes
