First Turkey Smoke/Juice in Cavity ??

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Good morning gents,

 

After stalking turkey threads for the past 7 days I was ready to give it a shot. I brined and prepped my turkey this week. (Along with some smoked jalapeno and cream cheese filled meatballs, but thats a different story)

 

I have had the bird on for a few hours now, and there is quite a bit of juices/and or moisture built up in the cavity. My concern is that this could potentially be contaminated and not heated properly to kill all bacteria, is this something I should be worried about? Does it need to be drained mid cook? (I have attached a picture below)

 

Any help would be much appreciated!

Never had that issue. What temp are you running your smoker?

it ended up evaporating, but thank you! 

 

I was running late and ran it at 300 for the whole smoke

No worries at 300 degrees that juice is totally safe.
