A Great Way to Smoke Your Holiday Turkey
This recipe requires units with a smoker.
Wash and drain turkey. Sprinkle inside and out with salt and pepper.
Melt two sticks of butter of margarine. Pour over and inside turkey.
Place turkey in foil lined aluminum pan. Put it on the lower shelf
of the smoker. On the top shelf place a cured shoulder ham. Cook
at approximately 250° for about 45 minutes per pound. (Most
turkeys now have a pop-up thermometer in the breast, so there is
no guess work as to when it is done.) Baste occasionally with the
pan drippings. Let the drippings from the ham do the rest. When
the turkey has reached golden brown, remove the ham and cover the
turkey with foil; complete cooking. NOTE: The ham is delicious also.

or apple slice inside each hen.
Remove breast from doves (instructions below) and discard the rest.
Place ½ of a jalapeno pepper between two dove breasts; (we
use Clements Jacques pickles jalapeno peppers) wrap with a strip
of bacon and pin with toothpicks. Baste with your favorite sauce
and place on grill away from direct heat at 250° for 1-1/2 hours.
Or cook directly over coals, turning frequently until done.
You can easily remove the breast from the bone before cooking,
using a sharp knife, splitting the breast on each side of the bone
and shaving off the meat.
