No, excuse me!

I was working on a sentence or two for that but, accidently deleted them while cutting and paisting .

It is a maze smoker. (I'm trying to stay away from the brand name) They are mostly used for cold smoking, but if you have an alternate heat source like we do, they should work for hot smoking too. Usually it is loaded with saw dust. Some are designed for pellets.



Some are made in tube forms.


Either way, I think of them as a slow burning fuses. They can be lit on one end for a long lite smoke. Or lit on both ends for more smoke, but with less time.

I do think that someone could make something "easy and cheap" to get similar results. Perforating a disposabable aluminum pan and leaving a little separation in the snaking pile should work. I do intend to experiment some myself with a ham and a couple of chicken hens this up coming holiday .

I've seen online something called a charcoal snake. If you Google it you will see what I'm talking about. I was thinking that it would work on smoking a turkey. Has anyone used this method or others for slow smoking in you WFO?

Look forward to here what everyone is planning for the big day.
I've been doing BBQ and smoking meats for years, thou I'm not an expert. I just want to say that poultry should not be in a environment of less than 300* without being cured first. If you want to smoke a turkey at low temp you must use a brine with a curing salt "sodium nitrite". I have smoked many turkeys at 300* and brined without a cure and they turn out awesome. Just a FYI.

I have no prior experience to tell me that this will work, but my plan for this Thanksgiving is as follows:

Wednesday Night: Pizza for visiting family, brine the bird. Keep the fire going an hour or two after pizza to get the bricks saturated.
Thursday morning: Oven hopefully 500-550. Bake bread.
Thursday afternoon: Oven hopefully 450-500, Turkey in.
After the turkey's out: Oven hopefully 350-400, casseroles in while the turkey rests.

I bought a remote barbeque thermometer, where the probe stays in the meat while it cooks. So we'll play it by ear with how long to cook the turkey.

Ryan. I don't want to burst your bubble but unless you have some super duper WFO...I would say I don't think so to your heating schedule.

So you may want to plan on giving the oven a bit of a kick here and there.

Thanks Chris,
I totally missed the 250 temp in the post. Your advice is dead on about the "pink curing salt" in this case Although, the best turkey that I ever had, was a fully cured/smoked. Actually, it was pretty close to the "best ham" that I ever had .

Gulf,
Those smoking devices are pretty cool. How did your homemade device work out for ya? is that a saw dust paste of some sort?

Attached picture is charcoal snake method that I was considering. I figured it might work on a WFO. Although now that I think about it, starting with a cold oven I would probably have trouble reaching and maintaining temperature.......... Makes more sense to have preheated oven. I'm not sure how much heat this method would produce, but I think I give it test run on a Boston butt before turkey day.


I plan on brining my turkey before hand. Any one have any brine recipes they would like to share?

Oh certainly. The overnight temperature loss is probably going to be the biggest problem. If I can the oven around 525 for bread baking, experience with my oven tells me the rest should work out. I've managed to keep temps >525 overnight before, but not from one long firing, so most likely I'll need to light a quick fire Thursday morning and bake the bread closer to noon.

All of the pics in my above posts were taken from the internet. The homemade smoking maze/snake was also, and is not something that I have tried.........yet . But I will be doing so very soon. It is not a paste, just regular hardwood/fruitwood saw dust (of your choosing for flavor preference) poured into the container.

Please give us/me a report on the charcoal snake after you do. It sounds very interesting!
..................
I'll pass on the brining recipes, unless you want to check this one out on another forum that I'm following.

I'm sure that you will get some varying and all very great responses to that question .

Charcoal snake was a success. More details later. Attached pictures help tell the story.
