Pecan Smoked Turkey

Prep Time: 30 minutes | Cook Time: 3 – 4 Hours | Servings: 16 - 18

Special Equipment Used:

Instant Read Thermometer
Electric Smoker
Foil Drip Pan


1 - Turkey – 16 to 18 lbs
2 – cups of wood chips of your choice
4 – 8 tbs of Organic Olive Oil
4 – 8 cups of water
Smoked Salt and Pepper to taste

Pre-heat the smoker to 275 degrees and add the first cup of wood chips before putting the turkey in.


Step 1 – Remove turkey from the packaging and be sure to remove anything from the internal cavity. Pat dry with paper towels and place on a large cutting board or platter.

Step 2 – Coat the turkey with olive oil and season with smoked salt and pepper to taste.

Step 3 – Place turkey into smoker with a foil drip pan underneath and add 4 cups of water to the pan.

Step 4 – Check on the turkey after 2 hours, add the second cup of wood chips and water to the drip pan as needed. Cook for an additional 1 – 2 hours, using an internal read thermometer to check for doneness.

The turkey is done when it reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees, so be sure to pull it out of the smoker when an internal temperature of 155 is reached. Allow to rest for 15 minutes on a platter or cutting board, and lightly tent with foil to hold in the heat. It will gradually continue cooking and come up the temperature during that time. Slice, serve and enjoy!

If you don't have a smoker, you can pick them up pretty cheaply these days. I used an electric smoker and it really takes all of the work out of watching the temperatures, it really is kind of set it and forget it!
