Quick question ...

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I'm about to put my 11 pound turkey in my electric smoker.  Where should I put it?  On the bottom, right above the water, or higher? 

Any help is welcome

Are you smoking anything else in it?  You always want to put poultry on the bottom so no juices drip onto other meats you're cooking a/c cross contamination.  If by itself, put it on top where your highest heat is to get it through 40° to 140° in 4 hours if it is uncured.

Thanks Pops.  I'm not cooking anything else so I should raise the bird?  I have a masterbuilt electric 30.  It's on the bottom now, but I can raise it if you feel that is a better idea.  This is my first bird...hope to have some nice pictures later.
