I am a complete rookie at this smoking thing, lots of reading not much doing. I have a Weber One touch Silver BBQ-22.5". I attempting my first turkey. I am trying to attain temps around that 300* mark. One chimmey full of coals was lit and banked on one side of the grill. After one hour in I have temps of 300+ at the top of the lid but the air temp at the turkey itself is 255. I have a digital probe stuck in a potato close to the turkey. Is this hot enough?

Hello Bountyhunter. Sounds like you got that tiger by tha tail. HANG ON! Your doin fine. Most of these things aren't rocket science but can be a little intimidating. Nice to have knowledgeable folks like Dave around to hold your hand a little till you find your feet. Have fun my friend and don't forget the Qview. Keeep Smokin!
Sorry for not getting back to you, I was too busy fighting off the kids. Put it in the fridge over night and then sliced it cold and took it to a neighborhood picnic. It got inhaled, I almost didn't get any. I haven't figured out how to do pictures yetbut will look into it poss this weekend as I am planning on doing a chicken and some ribs. Thank you again for all your support. This site is fantastic.
