Say goodbye to the bland turkeys of yesteryears and say hello to flavorful smoked turkey! Pack this year’s turkey with flavor by smoking it on your Hasty Bake! We’ve got a simple recipe that is easy to follow and will WOW your holiday guests.



  1. Place the garlic and onions inside the turkey and rub the outside of the turkey with seasoning. Put the turkey in a large aluminum baking pan or Hasty Bake baster pan. Fill the pan with ¼” to ½” of the basting liquid of your choice. Make sure the heat deflector is in place over the coals and bring your Hasty Bake to about 200°F. Cover the breast of the turkey with a flourcloth or cheesecloth soaked in olive oil, butter or bacon grease. Baste the bird about every 30 minutes-it is important that you don’t let the turkey dry out.
  2. Smoke the turkey approximately ½ hour per pound, plus one additional half hour. You will need to refresh the supply of hardwood charcoal about every 1 to 1 ½ hours. Small amounts of fruit wood, such as apple or cherry, may be added to the fire to give your turkey a stronger smoke flavor. To test for doneness, use an Insta-Read thermometer. The thickest part of the breast should be 165°F.
  3. Note: To have a picture-perfect bird, you should remove the flourcloth or cheesecloth to brown the breast about 30 minutes prior to removing the turkey from the grill.
