Safely thaw your turkey and remove the innards.
If you chose to rinse off your turkey pat dry before injecting.
Your smoking tools are just as crucial as a good smoker, use a metal injector with a large opening and needle point.
Measured out a cup of Jack Daniels into a glass to pull from. This way I wasn't dipping the injector back in the bottle of Jack Daniels.
Place your turkey in a cooler or container and start to inject.
Fill your cooler with the rest of the brine ingredients and submerge your turkey.
Make sure while your turkey is brining to store it in the fridge or in ice water. You don't want the temperature to rise and grow bacteria.
The day you are ready to smoke your turkey remove your turkey from the brine, I set mine in a pan to allow it to dry off a bit while I prepare the rest.
