Default Thanksgiving turkey tips

Since Thanksgiving and cooking turkey is upon us
I thought I'd pass along some tips
The easiest way to brine a turkey is in a Reynolds oven bag
they are very tough and won't leak if you don't poke any holes in them
I put the turkey in the bag breast side down and squeeze out as much air as possible
the basic recipe for brine is 1-cup of salt to 1-gallon of water
some folks add sugar. I just add a bunch of Montreal chicken seasoning to the water
I BBQ roast mine in a 22" OldSmokey set up for two-sided indirect
with a raised drip pan between the two coal beds
the OldSmokey runs around 325 which cooks in normal time
it doesn't dry out the meat like a long slow smoke and you get good skin
I cook the turkey to 160 in the breast, then put a loose foil tent over it when it rests
