Apple wood, or hickory chips smoked in white wine for 2-3 hours. Did it at culinary school. Brine it first.

Just a cheap white wine.
And no, a gallon of water with one cup of salt, and whatever seasonings you'd like, heat until dissolved, add a gallon of ice water, make sure the solution is cold, then put the turkey in it. Brine for 8 hours.

1 gallon of water, 1 cup salt, and your choice of seasonings, in a pot and heat until the salt is dissolved. Then add a gallon of ice water to that solution. Then put the turkey in the solution for 8 hours. take it out after 8 hours, rinse it off, then smoke it.

No prob. I would've bought it yesterday. It takes 2 days to thaw from the store.

You also have to leave the turkey uncovered for a couple hours so it can form a pellicle. It's like a skin that the smoke clings on. Its hard and tacky. But goes away after smoking.

No problem. Let me know how it comes out. And smoke it until the internal temperature is 180. I'm pretty sure it's longer than 8 hours, but I don't remember.
