Welcome back to Anderson’s SmokeShow! Today we are making a smoked turkey on my Camp Chef Pellet Grill! This smoked spatchcock turkey was smoked to perfection! Come Check it out!
It’s almost time for Thanksgiving and there is no better way to prepare for that Thanksgiving turkey than to smoke a few ahead of time! This recipe is easy to follow and covers all of the steps necessary to knock the socks off your guests! Now remember this is a spatchcock turkey which is not always as pretty as that presentation quality Thanksgiving turkey. No worries though… we will be smoking one of those in a few weeks too!

I used my turkey brine recipe for this one. It consists of:
– 1 gallon unsalted chicken broth
– 1/2 cup salt
– 1/2 cup light brown sugar
– 1 tsp garlic powder
– 1 tsp black pepper
– 1 tsp parsley
– 1 tsp thyme
– top off with water if necessary
I placed the 14lb turkey into a 2.5gal zippered freezer bag along with the brine and placed it in the refrigerator for 14-16hrs.
Removed from the brine and pat dried the turkey with paper towel. I then proceeded to spatchcock the turkey. See the video for details!
I used avocado oil as a binder and used the Spiceology Turkey Rub on both sides of the bird.
I made my own turkey injection and injected the breasts, thighs, and legs. The turkey injection was perfect which consisted of:
– unsalted butter
– brown sugar
– garlic powder
– black pepper
– bbq rub
I placed turkey in my Camp Chef SmokePro SG24 Wifi at 280F and smoke level 10. At this temperature it will take between 12-15min per pound, but ALWAYS track your internal temperature. You want the turkey breast to reach 165F no less and not much higher either. My 14lb turkey took about 3 hours and 10 minutes. This will produce an EXTREMELY juicy turkey!
I am being 100% honest when I say that this is the best smoked turkey that I have ever had! This is a juicy and flavorful how to recipe for all of you bbq smoked turkey fans!
