Three hours later, I'm back home. I had to go all over town to find coriander seeds, a necessary component of the brine. :bang:

I'm doing two turkeys this year. The bottom turkey, a 23 lb bird, will be my traditional brine turkey this thread is about.

The second (top) turkey will be a 16 lb bird that I will turn into my Jalapeno Turkey. Injected with steroids (Jalapeno Butter), with fresh Jalapeno slices shoved up under the skin, whole fresh Jalapenos and Onion halves filling the body and neck cavities, a special chipotle rub, with Jalapeno halves covering the outside, wrapped, of course, like a mummy in Cheese Cloth, with left over Jalapeno Butter (from the injection) poured over the Cheese Cloth after the turkey is placed into the smoker.

And as good as the Jalapeno Turkey is, it cannot compete with the brine turkey. :cool:

I am making one alteration this year. I am using Applewood instead of Mesquite, just for a change. I also picked up the Kingsford Applewood Charcoal. I thought the sweetness of the Applewood smoke would go better with the Jalapeno Turkey, which will already have enough bite to it (Mesquite smoke might just put that "bite" over the edge.) We'll find out. :excited:

think you find a much better smoke with the apple wood, I like mesquite for hot cooking steaks, but because it burns so hot, like a lower heat smoke.

as said doing 2 birds, one in hickory and one in apple, I am suspect of the hickory, may be to much, we see.

I smoke beef, pork, chicken, turkey, but I agree nothing beats traditionally cook turkey, with gravy made from the drippings, and the smell all after noon, yummm. we doing that thanksgiving day for home, smoking the other 2 to take to the big family day celebration Saturday.

Nothing that comes out of an Oven can even be considered to be on the same planet of culinary bliss as turkeys cooked via this method. :tounge:

Gravy? That's what the Giblets are for. But that's only for the cornbread dressing. Putting gravy on this turkey is like putting Ketchup on a $100 steak. Aint no way. You don't need gravy on it and after the first bite you will not want gravy on it. :dance:

The Jalapeno turkey is ready to go. Injected with enough steroids to make Bonds take notice. I fit 8 Jalapeno halves under the skin (that's 4 large Jalapenos), using 12 Jalapenos in total. This thing looks like a mutant turkey with humps all over the place. :roflmao:

Anyways, the Japapeno turkey is ready for the smoker. All prepped up, rubbed up, and crammed full of onions and Jalapenos. Should be interesting.
