Hey everyone! Looking to smoke a turkey here in the next month or so, and been reading that you cannot fit a big turkey in an MES 30". Is that true? If you can, how big of a turkey can you fit in?
It's not just whether or not a Turkey fits in a Smoker. It's also whether you & your smoker can get it from 40° IT to 140° IT in no longer than 4 hours. And then continue to completion. That is also why you shouldn't stuff a Turkey if you're going to smoke it.
I have the MES 40 I like the 12lbs. Hotel style they are breast with wings,thighs and legs removed.
Here is a link that will help in how big a 40 is
Don't quote me on this because I sold my MES 30 a couple years ago, so I can't measure it, but I think the MES 30 & the MES 40 are the same depth.
The MES 40 is higher & wider but the same depth.
No, Sorry I have not.
Turkeys & Chickens are some of the things my Son does down at his house. We do different things & share between our houses.
I do some Chicken parts, but he does the whole birds.
