We just got our new RecTec. Canadian TG is in october (I live in the US), but I am doing it early b/c I will be crazy busy in October. We have 16 people coming over on Saturday. I have 2 - 15lb Turkeys.
We also have a MES that we enjoyed learning on, but found the unstable temp stressful b/c I could never tell what the exact temp was for timing. A 13 lb turkey was done in 4 to 6 hours in the MES. Since I could never tell the actual temp. I can't use that as a gauge.
We got a cookbook with our RecTec, but it doesn't have recipe for smoking, only roasting a stuffed turkey. Can I smoke a stuffed turkey on the RecTec? I know it is not advised in the MES.
How long do I do two 15 lb turkeys? What temp do I start? Do I need to add more pellets?I know there are guidelines for temp to a certain point after 4 hours for food safety.
I would appreciate instructions on Time, temp etc for two 15 lb turkeys. I am looking forward to having my oven free for everything else!
We got two very large bags of pellets. One is a hickory/apple/Cherry mix the other is a hard wood mix. What do we use the hard wood mix for?
