Smoked Turkey Snow Day

Had a little snow today. Temps were around 20* and windy. So I smoked a turkey.

Brined 8 hours in 2 gallons of water, 2 cups kosher salt, 1 cup of brown sugar, and an undetermined amount of leftover hog rub.

Smoked 2 hours @ 300-350 with Wild Cherry chips (thanks Diva Q!)

Finished in oven for 1.5 hours @ 325.

I'm going to let this thing sit and will finally get a bite of it when I get back from work tonight.

Until next time....

The UFC meets BBQ - A match made in heaven!

My competition BBQ team, Holy and Oly's BBQ, is sponsoring Nate Mohr in his UFC 93 fight on January 17, 2009. The fight is taking place in Dublin, Ireland. Nate is an undercard fighter so his will be one of the first shown. The fight can be seen on pay per view. Look for our name on his trunks!

I'm not sponsoring Nate for any exposure in the BBQ world. Fact is, our team doesn't even have a webpage. But I believe in him - and I have known him since he was in high-school. Join me in wishing him luck - and praying that neither Nate, nor his opponent, suffer an injury.

Here is a video of some of his fights:
