Apple Wood Smoked Turkey

My awesome husband took over the turkey cooking once again! He is truly amazing. He found this recipe and it was GREAT!

Apple Wood Smoked Turkey

12-15 pound turkey (we had a 11 lb turkey)
1 cup kosher salt
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup maple syrup
2 quarts apple juice
1 or 2 quarts water (use enough to allow the breast to be fully submerged)

1. Mix the brine and soak the turkey in the brine overnight in a non metal container covered in the fridge.
2. Soak your wood chips. Meanwhile, pull the turkey out of the brine and rinse off with water. Pat dry with paper towels.
3. Then my husband puts the turkey on the rotisserie on the outside grill with his wood chips. It usually takes 2-3 hours if your turkey was thawed.
