"This is the best Thanksgiving turkey you could possibly imagine. The first time my husband cooked it he was concerned about it getting done, left it on the grill a little longer than suggested, and it literally fell off the bone when we moved it to the serving plate, but I hardly had any leftovers to put away! We have also stuffed the turkey with sweet onion while smoking and it turned out wonderfully."

1 (7 pound)
bag of ice cubes
(15 to 20) pound turkey, giblets removed
vegetable oil, or as needed
1 cup wood chips
I have used this brine for years. It adds a perfect amount of flavor to the turkey. Instead of following these cooking directions I follow it up with the honey smoked turkey recipe I also found on here. Doing the combination of these two recipes makes amazing turkeys.
