Smoking my first turkey
SmokingMeatForums.com Top Picks
No as long as the IT of the bird gets to over 140 in under 4 hours.
If the bird isn't to big and your cooking at a normal temp, you should be ok.
Most people cook them at 275 and up.
I have Jeff's book and every smoke temperature is 225 to 240.
But I'm seeing most off ya all are cooking at higher temps.
I just did a Shoulder at 230 and it took forever and posted my concerns and found most cook at 275 to 300.
I'm really new at this so any help would be greatly appreciated.
The other thing I have noticed is this Danger Zone, not to probe the meat prior to 135 if the meat wont get to that temperature with in 4 hours. Hadn't ever heard of that before as I have bought the Maverick 733 is that always the case?
I have usually put the probe in a let her go.
