| The bird was done hours before I expected it to be. Which is good... I can get some zzzzzzzzz time before hauling it off to the in-laws.
The bird brined for 6 hours in a couple gallons of water, sea salt, 2 quarts of veggie stock and 1 lb. of honey.
It smoked for 6 hours. I used apple wood for the smoke. And had quartered apples and onions in the water bowl to help with flavor. I also stuffed the bird with quartered apples to keep the juices in the bird.
