Ultimate Smoked Turkey

  • Difficulty3/5
  • Prep time60 mins
  • Cook time3 hrs
  • Serves6 – 8
  • HardwoodApple

Give your turkey the smoke it deserves. This bird is brined in our signature citrus brine kit, rubbed down with Turkey Rub and smoked over none other than our Turkey Blend hardwood for flavor inside and out.




The day before brine the turkey according to the package directions.

Remove from brine in the morning, rinse and pat dry. Season the inside cavity with Traeger Pork & Poultry rub and transfer to the fridge. Let chill for at least 1 hour.

Remove from the fridge and truss the legs and tuck the wing tips back around the bird.

When ready to cook, start the Traeger grill on Smoke (with super smoke setting if it allows) with the lid open until the fire is established (4 to 5 minutes).

Place the turkey in a roasting pan and place directly on the grill grate. Cook until the internal temperature reaches 100-110 degrees F.

Increase the temperature on the grill to 350 degrees F and continue to cook until an instant read thermometer registers 160 degrees F when inserted into the inside of the thigh.

Remove the bird from the grill and let rest for at least 15 minutes before carving. Enjoy!
