I have a 14bs turkey and using the master built electric smoker. What is the best temp to smoke a 14 lbs turkey and for how long.
Any feed back be helpful
I put mine in this morning at 10:00am and it's almost to 160* Five hours. I also spatchcocked it and man...it looks good. It's on at 250*. I am also not caring one way or the other about the crispy skin since I am going to slice it all up and reheat for tomorrow.
250-300'ish will get decent crisp skin after hours....use a therm in the thigh muscle...I'm a 180 IT liking guy in the thigh near the bone
Your MES tops out at 275° so use that un till the breast gets to 155° then move it to an oven at 350°-450° till IT of 165° and you will have crispy skin.
