Well did my first Turkey on my MES 30 today. Temp outside was in mid 40's, Clear and windy.
Started the smoke around 11am. I had the smoker set at 275, on my maverick et-733 temp was steady around 255 -265. I finished it up around 2pm, it cooked faster than i thought it would. I didn't brine it but it already had a 8% solution in it. I just put a cajun rub on it. To make a long story short, it came out good, except there wasn't much smoke flavor. I used apple chips for the whole time 3 hrs. The skin looked good but wasn't. I am more concerned about the smoke flavor. What can I do?
Here's a picture.
The breast temp was 165 and thigh was about 162.
