Best smoked turkey in Dallas for the holidays? I am thinking of trying Kuby's, but would love to hear the forum's input, if any.

    smoke one yourself, it's easy to do and fun to boot.

      I agree with the smoke your own. I would say 30 min per pound.

      I have been smoking turkeys since I was about 15 or so...I am now 31. It would be the cheapest and also the best way to get your foot into the door on the bbq season in the spring. Plus if you look now you can have all the items ready for smoking for Christmas.

      A Greenburg turkey is also a very good way to go. I have had them and they are a very good turkey just not quite as moist as doing it yourself.

      The best smoked turkeys served in Dallas are Greenberg Turkeys from Tyler, Texas. Try www.gobblegobble.com.

        Greenberg turkeys are being sold at Central Market this year, FYI.

          Rudolph's in Deep Ellum. Small scale operation compared to Greenberg, but excellent, moist turkey.

            If you live anywhere near Haslet you can see if Lee's Barbecue is smoking turkeys this year. A few years ago the deal was this: bring in your own turkey two days before Thanksgiving and pick it up the next day. It cost a dollar a pound.

              We like Greenberg and Kuby's. Both are wonderful.
