150 Pound Turkey Smoke

post #1 of 41
Thread Starter 
Last week turkey was on sale for 58 cents a pound so we told friends and relatives if you want a turkey smoked we are smoking turkey on Saturday and for them to pick up what they wanted smoked and bring it to us thawed Wednesday. We ended up getting ten 13 to 16 pound turkeys and put the turkeys into the brine Wednesday. Two of the turkey my wife; Tatonka3A2 injected; one with roasted garlic & herb and the other with cajun hot ‘n spicy butter.

I have smoked 6 turkeys a few times before, 10 is a new record for us !!!

Going to smoke them for an hour and a half at 130º, then an hour and a half at 150º, then another hour and a half at 170º; after this I will back off on the smoke and turn up the smoker to 200º until the internal bird temp reaches about 162º or 163º.

Here are a few pictures of my winter rig and it loaded up with a long days turkey smoke. The smoker I have snuggled up in between the garage and the shed with a solid fence right behind it, I can smoke keeping constant temps in the winter even if it is -20º outside.

Here is a link from Roll Call from when I joined SMF that describes my home made 7 foot stainless steel smoker - http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/for...ead.php?t=5311

I use propane, to keep the temps low when I want I have a regulator hooked up to the propane line. If you notice the green regulator in the upper left of the picture mounted to my garage wall.

Where are the Wing Tags (or Toe Tags) to indicate who's bird is who's? LOL ..... Looks like 1 big flock of turkey strutted into the wrong neighborhood! NICE set up, the family will be raving about the birds well into the New Year.

I have never flipped them in the past, just smoke them to temp breast up. Is flipping them recommended?
post #19 of 41
Honestly I'm not sure. Although I have heard of them being flipped. I have not used the method ... my reason for asking.
