Default Smoked drunken turkey!

Yesterday morning I brined a turkey, then injected it with Drambuie just before popping it on the smoker today, it was an 18lb bird, not fresh one but frozen, bought after thanksgiving real cheap (I have 4 more in the freezer as I love smoked turkey) I also smoked a batch of jalapenos from the garden because a frost the other night killed off my 4 plants, they will keep nicely in the deep freeze now that they are smoked. This bird is slap-your-mama-good! it took 10 hours at 225 degrees in my offset smoker, fired by white oak and mesquite wood, no charcoal on this one. it has a nice smokey flavor, but not too smokey, and the meat has a nice sweetness from the drambuie that is offset by fresh rosemary, and the bite of crushed garlic and black pepper that went into the brine. next up...a christmas goose and a batch of my favorite: Smoked Scotch eggs! I may wrap a few of these gems in bacon to see if they can be improved upon.

My father started the Scotch eggs on the smoker christmas tradition, and I continue this family oddity. I think the bacon will really add another level to them, he would have approved of this addition I think!

You should do a thread with pics just on the smoked scotch eggs....I've only ever done the oven method, never the deep fried way...my experience has been so-so....But bacon wrapped and smoked, jeez.

That great of a description and you couldn't post a single picture? Probably better you did not as I'd be licking my monitor right now.

today for lunch it was....LEFTOVERS! I made a nice turkey sandwich, with mayo, a chunk of stuffing and cranberry sauce all on toasted wheat. if you have never tried a "thanksgiving sandwich" I recommend it! Tonights dinner is turkey salad on toasted french bread slices, topped with a few capers, a splash of Jalapeno tobasco sauce and served open face. man I love turkey, its so versatile!!
