Recipe by TOM TROTTIER
"Smoked turkey is a delightful way to cook a turkey while relaxing. I know lots of people are a bit apprehensive about preparing their first smoked turkey. I have smoked over 100 and never has a bad one. The skin is beautifully tanned and the meat is so juicy."

1 (12 pound)
thawed whole turkey, neck and giblets removed
chopped fresh savory
chopped fresh sage
ground black pepper
This was pretty easy since it was the very First thing I have EVER smoked! I have a combo gas, charcoal, smoker. It was a trick to 1. Start the smoker, ( Good thing I wasn't Appling as a contestant on Survivor!! LOLOL ) LOSER! & 2. keeping the proper temperature going. I had my spray bottle of water, which helped even more then closing the dampers, they only did so much but still too hot. My 13 lb. brined turkey took less then 2 hours. Too hot, I get it:) It was very good! I did give hubby a piece before we ate dinner and he thought it was ham. It was a Smokey Thanksgiving as I also served Ham! hahaha. Thank You Tom T. had fun with this one!
