just wanted to get some opinions on smoking turkey--
i loved smoked turkey, but i'm thinking about trying to do it a new way--with the skin off.
2 reasons for this: 1) the skin always comes out like leather after i smoke it for several hours and i end up discarding it anyways, and 2) i think the skin stops most of the smoke from getting inside the meat.
I don't know if it's even feasible to smoke a whole turkey with the skin off, and i realize that it would mean i wouldn't be able to inject it with butter since the skin is what holds it it.
I'm wondering if it's a crazy idea, or maybe someone here has tried it before?
