masterbuilt electric smoker cooktime

Hey All

 

looking for a little guidance :)

 

I would like to slow cook my turkey this year.....Not going to smoke it as the wife doesn't love the smoked flavor.

 

So i will just put the turkey into the MES add some water and let her cook.

 

Question- How long is a 27 Pound turkey going to take?...What temp is best?

 

thanks a ton all

I would forget the MES and go to the oven. If your not smoking your just heating and the oven will go to 350° which will cut down on cooking time and give you crispy skin.

Happy smoken.

I see this is your first post. When you get a chance will you drop by roll call so everyone can give you a proper SMF welcome?

Happy smoken.

Steelbone , hello . If you have an oven that is in use , you could 'cook' it in the MES ,and at the temps. Master builts top out , you'll be  slow cooking it and should expect 12min./lb. .at 265*F. . This a only a guestimate 

 

for planning cook time , use a probe therm. and go to 165*F in the Breast , The Legs and Thighs should be around 170*F .. However , if my oven was not being used , yes , and save the wear and tear on your smoker...

 

Have a great Thanksgiving , and . . .

At 225 it's 30 mins per pound. At 275 it's 18 per pound. And that's coming from the masterbuilt website
