Get the marinade you will be using and fill the syringe. We used Tony Chachere's Butter & Jalapeño Marinade. It is NOT hot at all once the turkey is smoked! It is just VERY moist and tasty!

Inject the marinade all over both sides of turkey. (Legs and wings too!)

Use almost the entire bottle for injecting the turkey. Save about 1/4 cup.

Pour any remaining marinade directly into the cavity. Tuck the feet of the turkey into the loose skin to secure.

The internal temperature probe should be at 160 degrees in the meatiest part of the turkey breast. Smoke the 10 lb turkey for 30 minutes/ pound at 225 degrees. Or 18 minutes/pound at 275 degrees.
