This is the best smoked turkey I've made yet! I used a 12.5 lb Butterball that I brined overnight in my turkey fryer pot. Used water,Better than Bouillion, kosher salt, jalepeno honey, regular honey, Penzeys Florida pepper and fresh garlic. I injected with Habanero infused real maple syrup about half an hour before smoking and put onion, a granny smith and 2 cloves fresh garlic in the cavity with some Pepsi. I forgot to pickup a foil roaster so I used my ceramic chicken roaster and cooked bird breast side up with a bit of Pepsi in the bottom. I rubbed my bird with EVOO and St. Amand's Cajun BBQ Rub and some Weber Beer Can Chicken seasoning. I have an electric Masterbuilt I smoked over apple and hickory for about 5-1/2 hours. I brought it in and basted with Bourbon Maple Syrup and put in oven at 325 for about 20 min to make glaze adhere. Very flavorful and juicy. I actually found the recipe about an hour into the smoking process and had already stuffed the cavity but just didn't have the cola so that didn't go in until about 2 hours into cooking but still turned out wonderful! Thanks for the great addition!
