Since we will be down in Belize for Thanksgiving without the family, I figured I would be the good son and smoke some turkeys for my mother, sister and their friends. Now I am quite creative when it comes to smoking things and this would be the case for this creation. One of the birds, I stuffed the cavity with apples and between the skin and the meat I put the remaining concoction of red bell pepper and garlic puree with corn and black beans that we had the week before as a dip. On the outside I dusted the bird with a BBQ dry rub that I had and then went to work on the other bird. The other I simply put 2lbs of bacon on it and injected it with fruit juices and then let both of them smoke for 12 hours. I have tried both and they are fantastic! I will freeze them and on Turkey day they can thaw, heat and serve.
Sorry I won’t be here to eat it with them but I plan on having Lobster on my Thanksgiving day! Don’t hate the player hate the game!
OK to the pictures!
