Ingredients

Applewood Pellets
12 - 14 lbs Turkey
4 Cups + 1 Gallon Water, Warm

Cooking Method

  1. Start by defrosting the turkey overnight in the refrigerator.
  2. Once turkey has been defrosted begin to make the brine by adding 4 cups of water and the brine mixture to a large stockpot.
  3. Bring the mixture to a boil and add 1 gallon of cold water.
  4. Place the turkey in the brine bag and pour the brine mixture over the turkey and refrigerate 1 hour per pound.
  5. Once turkey has been brined rinse the turkey with cold water and set on a pan.
  6. Using the seasoning in the brine box, season the turkey. Once turkey has been seasoned start your Pit Boss smoker by turning it to 275 degrees.
  7. Place your turkey in the smoker and place the temperature probe in the deepest part of the breast. Cook at 275 until the internal temperature has reached 180 degrees.
  8. Remove the turkey from the smoker, let cool, and cut the turkey into your desired pieces. Enjoy!
