Is there a stall with Turkey?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I'm currently 3 hours into a 22lb turkey smoke.  My plan was to smoke at 230 degrees for a couple hours, and then crank it up to 325 degrees to finish it off.  Well, 3 hours in the breast and thigh are at 138 and 139 degrees.  I was estimating 30 minutes per pound, but after three hours I'm a little worried it's going to finish way to early.  I have not cranked it up to 325 yet out of fear that it's going to finish well before dinner time.  Should I expect a stall?  Any advice would be much appreciated!

No it won't stall but it may slow down a tad. That's awfully quick for a bird that big at that low temp. You sure about your mumbers?

I think I have probe issues.  Switched to another set and it is at 115 and 125 degrees in the breast and thigh.  That sounds a little better for 3 hours in.
