    What internal temp are you folks going for before you pull the turkey breast off the smoker?

    According to Jeff's how to the breast should be 175* but he does say you can take it off to rest at 170* because it will continue to rise 5-7* while foiled or tented

    Thanks Pineywoods. I've got one brining up now for tomorrow. Figure I'll do a light smoke with some mesquite on the UDS. I think I'll pull it at 170, wrap it and toss in the cooler for an hour. This one is going to be made into lunch meat.

    Sounds great I just did my first whole bird today and managed to save enough for a few sandwiches [​IMG]
