Quick Turkey questions

Discussion in 'Poultry' started by chopper, Apr 25, 2009.

  1. Smoking a turkey today in my new GOSM and have two last minute questions:

    1 - do I give it a "drying time" before adding smoke?

    2 - Where do you all put the therm? Breast / Thigh?

    I pat mine down an let the water/brine drain out then give em some rub an inta the hot smoker.

    Either one will work, I generally use the breast an gota 170*.

    Good luck on the bird!

    Don't be usin that dirty word! Finally thins er gettin green round here, two days a rain though, long as we don't have a flood like last year! Don't care ta go through that again anytime soon!

    Little snow never stops a smoke round here, not as much fun as a nice day, but ya gotta smoke!

    100%...and with this weather, I don't need to add as much ice to keep my squeezin's cold :)
