Did I miss it, Hulk?  Is it a whole bird, or parts?

Tony,

Doesn't  matter if parts or whole. A wild turkey is built differently than those plump storebought ones. Many hunters breast out the birds because there not much to the legs. However, by confit you can make just about anything moist & delicious.  It going to take alot longer to get the legs right than the breast. This is based on my experience with cooking wild turkey.

Thanks Walt!  Knew you'd eventually show up to help Hulk out! ;)   Couldn't imagine that you hadn't done wild turkey!

Anybody ever smoke a wild turkey?
Did you smoke it?  Here is a link to the one I did. I pieced it, and smoked the whole thing.  Breast and thighs were incredible.  The drums and wings were tough, so deboned them and used it in stew--hot dang that was good. http://smokinitforums.com/index.php?topic=5021.msg46308#msg46308
