Good luck. Don't let that breast dry out. White meat is done before dark.

I was a chef for 11 years. There is nothing a know as a dry bird!!!

It was at 120 in the breast and thigh. When i checked last.

I was thinking of basting it with Samuel Adams Octoberfest, but I desided to bast myself frist!!!!!!

Heh... good choice. A butter or oil based mop/baste would serve ya better. Speakin' of the 'Fests... the local got the Hacker-Pschorr in last week. The REAL McCoy on tap! Nothing against Adams, well except maybe they over-hop typically ;{)

What type of cooking unit you using? a couple of years ago I did a turkey in a great outdoors, smoky mountain series, gas smoker real low for about 6 hours, and it was great. But nothing beats the one I did on a camping trip 13 years ago on one of them orange capsul looking brickett burning ones. started it in the morning, went hicking 4hrs later restoked the Kingsford, went hicking again, came back at dinner time, and had the best thanksgiving diner my wife and I can remember. bin wanting to do one on my new Treager but I did a chicken and the skin turned out like rubber
