Each year my husband and I get up around 5 a.m. to get our Thanksgiving Day turkey on the smoker. Years ago we bought a smoker and it has been one of our favorite investments so far. Smoking is definitely an art and we’re no pros at it, but one thing we have yet to mess up is the Thanksgiving Turkey. Today I’ll show you how to Smoke a Turkey for Thanksgiving, as well as how to clean your smoker before and after using that I use ALL over my house.
The morning of Thanksgiving, we get up around 5 a.m., remove our turkey from the cooler, and rinse it off well in the sink (we clean the sink well first before and after).
We then take our turkey and place it on a cookie sheet and dry it off thoroughly with a towel or paper towel. Then we get to preparing it for the smoker.
We use the steam cleaner to clean off the grill, which is great because it gets it clean in no time at all!
We like to use the steel brush to clean it off because it holds up the best and really can take a beating and still work well.
The outside of our turkey always gets darker–not burnt–just darker (so don’t be frightened), but the inside is always perfectly moist, tender, and delicious. And it smells AMAZING. The nice thing about a smoked turkey is that it really has a ton of flavor compared to a standard turkey. Your guests will RAVE.
