Smoked Turkey

Cajun seasoning
Sunflower oil (vegetable, canola or olive oil works too)
Onion powder
Garlic powder
Chicken broth

Thawing turkey can be ether done by placing it in refrigerator for about 2-3 days maybe even 4. Another way is to place turkey in a bowl in sink and have water drip on it for about 6 hours or so.

Prepare injection sauce by combining
1/2 cup of oil
1/2 cup of chicken broth
1/2 cup of vinegar
2 tablespoons of cajun seasoning
2 tablespoons of onion powder
2 tablespoons of garlic powder
in a sauce pan, bring to boil for about 5 minutes.
Let cool to warm temp

Remove everything from turkey's cavity (neck, liver, heart and gizzard). You can ether cook that or throw it away.

Rub turkey with cajun seasoning (season inside the cavity too)

Inject breast and and thighs with injection sauce

Place turkey in a large zipple bag and refrigerate for 12-24 hours.

Smoke at 275-300 degrees Fahrenheit until thighs and breast is 160-165

When done, remove from smoker, let rest for about 30 minutes before carving.
