ultimate smoked turkey

INGREDIENTS


  • 1 (18-20 lb) turkey

  • 1 Your Favorite Orange Brine and Turkey Rub Kit

  • 1/2 Cup Your Favorite Pork & Poultry Rub

  • 1/2 Pound butter, softened

PREPARATION

Steps

1

The day before, brine the turkey according to the Z Grill Turkey Brine Kit package directions. Remove from brine, rinse and pat dry.

2

Season the inside cavity with 2 tablespoons Z Grill Pork & Poultry Rub reserving the rest for the exterior.

3

Prepare the turkey by separating the skin from the breast creating a pocket to stuff the softened butter in. Cover the entire breast with 1/4 inch thickness of butter.

4

Season the exterior of the bird with remaining rub.

5

Transfer to the fridge and let chill for at least 1 hour.

6

Remove from the fridge and truss the legs and tuck the wing tips back around the bird.

7

When ready to cook, set the Z Grill to 225℉ and preheat, lid closed for 15 minutes. For optimal flavor, use Pellet Tube if available.

8

Place the turkey in a roasting pan and place directly on the grill grate. Cook until the internal temperature reaches 100-110℉.

9

Increase the temperature on the grill to 350℉ and continue to cook until an instant read thermometer registers 160℉ when inserted in the thickest part of the breast (check every 30 minutes after grill temperature is increased), about 3 to 4 hours total cook time. Turkey will continue to cook once taken off grill to reach a final temperature of 165℉ in the breast.

10

Remove the bird from the grill and let rest for at least 30 minutes before carving. Enjoy!
