  • Bring vegetable oil, cider vinegar, hot pepper sauce, garlic powder, salt, pepper, and honey to a rapid boil in a saucepan. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer basting sauce for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.

  • Lay turkey flat on wire racks of the smoker. Place racks into the smoker, and smoke according to manufacturer's directions, basting every 15 minutes, about 2 hours. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the thigh should 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

Cook's Notes:

If you don't own a smoker, a grill can be used instead.

Smoke the turkey for up to 3 hours, depending on it's size.
