Picture of Bacon Wrapped Smoked Turkey
Someone passed me an amazing photo last Thanksgiving of an oven roasted, Bacon Wrapped Turkey and it looked amazing. I personally love smoking my Thanksgiving bird, and who can say no to bacon, so I decided to wrap a bird with a bacon weave, throw it in my smoker, and Voila, I have created my favorite new Thanksgiving tradition!

Step 1: The Bacon Weave

First, get yourself about 2 pounds of bacon in order to make the bacon weave. I won't bore you with the steps to create a weave, there are plenty of sites that can give you the rundown. They are really simple to make, and have plenty of uses... like my grilled Breakfast Fatty that I will post up here one of these days!
