Categories: Smoked Turkey
Total time: 120 minutes
Prep time: 20 minutes
Cook time: 10 minutes
Yield: 1 (10 pound) turkey
|1 (10 pound) whole turkey, neck and giblets removed|
|4 cloves garlic, crushed|
|2 tablespoons seasoned salt|
|½ cup butter|
|2 (12 fluid ounce) cans cola-flavored carbonated beverage|
|1 medium apple, quartered|
|1 medium onion, quartered|
|1 tablespoon garlic powder|
|1 tablespoon salt|
|1 tablespoon ground black pepper|
|2 cups hickory wood chips, or more as needed|
- Preheat a smoker to 225 to 250 degrees F (110 to 120 degrees C).
- Rinse turkey under cold water, and pat dry.
- Rub crushed garlic over the outside of the turkey, and sprinkle with seasoned salt. Transfer to a disposable roasting pan.
- Fill the turkey cavity with butter, cola, apple, onion, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Cover turkey loosely with foil.
- Add wood chips to the smoker according to the manufacturer’s directions. Place the roasting pan in the preheated smoker. Smoke the turkey, basting every 1 to 2 hours with juices from the bottom of the roasting pan, for 5 hours.
- Add more wood chips if desired. Continue smoking and basting, until turkey is no longer pink at the bone and the juices run clear, about 5 more hours. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the thigh, near the bone, should read 180 degrees F (80 degrees C).
