Happy Thanksgiving you animals...LOL. We always use a turkey bag and bake ours and prep a couple of ways separate the skin and slather all the butter between the skin and meat. Other way is to get sage and/or rosemary and wrap it around thick pats of butter and cut slits in the turkey in a few places and then shove the butter/herb down in slits. And always use thick cut peppered bacon......a whole dam pack......MURICA....... and drape it across the bird making a layer and the drippings off of the bird/bacon make the best gravy ever!!!

Did these Saturday for our early Thanksgiving with friends.

One traditional smoked and a second split and Cajun seasoning

about the same as this. I do after the first of the year when turkey go sale I will pick a few twenty plus lbs birds and split and smoke. They come out wonderful as well.

I get the brine form them I just stuff the bird with all that stuff
they have a jar of it and you boil it with water then add more water and apple cider to cool it off the bag and brine for 12 hours
be careful did one for 24 and it was a little too salty
im sure you can fine a similar brining recipe online
my wife went to some class at their store couple years ago and been doing ever since
ive smoked em fried em but nothing like an oven baked one
rough chop on my stuffing just quarters and whole garlic
butter butter like the bacon idea
