It's not a traditional "low and slow" barbecue cut where you have a lot of connective tissue to break down, like a pork butt. You're basically baking it in a smoky oven. You can cook it at 225 degrees and have it taste exactly the same, but it'll take a lot longer and not get very brown.

I always brine my turkeys. I use 3/4 cup of kosher salt and 3/4 cup of table sugar per gallon of water - 4 gallons of water in a food-grade plastic bucket. This one was in brine for 6 days, though that's overkill time-wise. 2 or 3 days is plenty.
