Super Easy Smoked Turkey
Foolproof smoked turkey recipe with tender and juicy results!
A gas smoker is used in this recipe. Pecan is the primary wood I use in my smoker. Charcoal can be used as well.
Check the water pan every 2 to 4 hours and add hot water as needed. Add damp wood chips as needed to maintain cooking temperature at 250 degrees F (120 degrees C).
This method works with turkeys weighing 12 to 20 pounds. Increase cooking time to reach safe internal temperature, approximately 30 minutes per pound.
