smoked a couple of turkeys this year. They came out very good.

Got up at 3:30 and got a fire going in the smoker, then finished preping the birds. Got them on about 4:40, and they cooked until just before 10. Also smoked some pork steaks for a friend who doesn't like turkey.

The turkey looks awesome. I really wanted to do a smoked turkey but I need to get some good wood to cook with. All we really have that is dry enough right now is oak. I think applewood would be great for a turkey. I might try and do something for Christmas.

For the most part I cooked with a 50/50 mix of oak and hickory. I think I put one piece of cherry and 1 peace of apple in during the +/-5 hours the birds cooked. Most the time when I needed to add wood I put in a piece of hickory and a piece of oak.

That looks delicious. It was very nice of you to smoke the pork for your friend. Nice work.
