We live in Indiana close to an Amish area. There are several Amish families who serve dinners from their homes to groups of people. This special recipe was shared by one such Amish lady and it has become my family's choice for preparing turkey and I think it may be yours too if you try it. There is no need to buy the most expensive turkey because prepared and baked this way,the meat is guaranteed to be tender, moist and literally fall off the bones!

How to Make Amish Smoked Turkey


  • 1Thaw turkey if frozen
  • 2Cut up turkey and place in containers with lids. We use the larger ice cream containers.
  • 3Make a salt solution using 1 C. of Morton's Tender Quick Salt per 8 cups of water. Using this ratio make enough to cover turkey pieces in the containers then seal and refrigerate for 48 hours.
  • 4Remove from refrigerator,lightly spray rinse each piece of turkey then brush each piece with the Wright's Liquid Smoke and place pieces in a turkey size baking bag. Add 1/2 cup of water and seal.
  • 5Bake overnight in a large roaster 25-30 minutes per pound at 250 degrees. Turkey is done when it falls off the bones. Remove from baking bag and remove bones from the turkey placing the meat in a 9X13 baking dish.
