Smoked Turkey Rub by Pit Buddies BBQ

Smoked Turkey Rub

Difficulty level:

This tasty recipe for an easy turkey rub had us doing cartwheels during a cooking class that was hosted by Pit Buddies BBQ at the Tulsa Garden Center.  It is savory and delicious and perfectly executed for seasoning whole turkeys to put on your Hasty-Bake.

The turkey they demonstrated was about 9lbs and cooked in a little less than three hours!  Wow, talk about changing the holiday cooking game.  Imagine NOT having to be in the kitchen ALL DAY to prepare the meal that takes us 15 mins to eat.
