I have a Weber Genesis with a wood chip smoker box. I'm going to try it. I'll let you know how it turns out.

You can also fill the cavity with a can of cola flavored soda ad some apple to add a nice flavor to it!

Bad advice, cook at 225 degrees, not 240 and only cook the bird to 160 degrees. Cooking it to 180 degrees with the thermometer in the thigh like she did will guarantee the breast will be as dry as shoe leather.

My family and I love the flavor of smoked turkey. I have been smoking meats for a couple of years now and I'm always looking for new styles and flavors to try in the smoker.
