I believe this is not recommended, because it's hard to get the things inside to temperature in most smokers.

Hi I just smoked 2 turkeys today and won't be serving them until Saturday and I'm wondering the best way to keep them and reheat them for the meal on saturday?

A haved Onion, 1 Carrot, 1 Rib Celery and a handful of Herbs...No problem. It is packing the cavity stuffed full or with Bread Stuffing and smoking at 225 that is an issue. If you smoke at 325-350, there is less risk.

I did 2 20 pounders yesterday. Today I sliced the meat and shingled in pans, covered with hot gravy (broth works too), covered with foil and reheated 1 hour at 325°F to an IT of 160. It was like fresh from the oven or smoker. Even the Turkey Hater's were impressed how moist the meat was...JJ
