  • Leftover Smoked Turkey
  • Chopped Red Onion
  • Chopped Baby Carrots
  • 1 Celery Stalks Chopped
  • 1 Tbspn Minced Garlic
  • 8 Cups Better Than Boullion Chicken Base Prepared
  • 1 1/2 Lbs Baby Potatoes Cut In Half
  • Fresh Ground Pink Himalayan Salt
  • 1 Tsp Thyme
  • 1 Tsp Rosemary
  • Fresh Ground Black Pepper
  • 1 Tsp Parsley
  • 1 Tsp Sage
  • 1/2 Cup Heavy Cream
  • 1 Tube Canned Biscuits


  • I used Better Than Boullion Chicken Base to make my chicken broth for the soup.
  • Chop and prepare all your vegetables.
  • Start to layer the vegetables into your dutch oven. I tend to always drop the potatoes and the carrots into the bottom of the dutch oven that way they are closer to the heat source to ensure they cook thoroughly.
  • Add your leftover smoked turkey on top of the vegetables.
  • Next, add the minced garlic and seasonings to the top of your turkey.
  • *You will not add the heavy whipping cream or biscuits until the end*
  • Pour in your chicken broth and give everything a good stir.
  • Get your smoker rolling smoke.  I started mine at 250 degrees before putting the dutch oven on the smoker.
  • I smoked this soup in my Pit Boss Pro 1100.
  • Smoke the soup at 250 degrees for 1 1/2 hours and then turn the smoker up to 300.
  • I smoked the soup for 2 1/2 hours at 300 degrees and then turned it up to 350 degrees.
  • Pour your cream into the dutch oven and stir it up. You can add more broth at this time if too much has cooked off.
  • While your smoker is coming up to 350 degrees cut your biscuits into quarters.
  • Once your smoker reaches 350 you will drop the quartered biscuits into the soup.
  • Allow to cook for about 10 minutes and then put the lid on the dutch oven.
  • Cook with the lid on for about another 10-15 minutes until the biscuits turn golden.
  • Remove and serve!
