  • 20 lb Turkey
  • Avocado Oil
  • Truffle Oil
  • Montreal Steak Seasoning
  • Garlic Salt
  • Onion Powder
  • Dried Parsley
  • Fresh Ground Black Pepper
  • Fresh Ground Pink Himyalians Salt


  • Thaw out your turkey 
  • Remove the turkey from bag,
  • Preheat your smoker and get a good smoke going, I brought mine up to 200 degrees and held that temperature for the whole smoke.
  • Rub down your turkey with the oil so it is coated before you season. 
  • Sprinkle with the seasonings to your desired taste, this shows how well I coated my turkey.
  • Spray your smoker rack with a nonstick spray.
  • Place your turkey on the rack and put the rack in the smoker when the smoker has reached the temperature of at least 165,
  • Allow to smoke, but remember to watch your water dish and your chips, pucks, or pellets as you smoking
  • I smoked our turkey for 8 hours at 200 degrees and then removed the puck holder. 
  • I kept the smoker at 200 degrees for the last hour.  Make sure to use a meat thermometer to make sure the turkey is cooked all the way thru.
  • Allow to rest and then enjoy!
