2. Bacon-Wrapped Smoked Turkey
This recipe calls for many ingredients and some planning, but the finished turkey’s rich, smoky flavor and juicy meat is more than worth it. First, the turkey is brined in a cider-spice brine to season it inside and out. Then, it gets rubbed with butter, honey, and a barbecue spice rub. Next, it's wrapped in bacon and smoked on the grill. As the bird finishes cooking, it gets spritzed with apple juice to beautifully burnish the skin and keep the meat moist and flavorful.
