I wanna do a 12-15lb turkey

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

I got my brine and everything else ready to go but what temp should the turkey be smoked at and roughly how long will a turkey that size take?

post #2 of 7

I loooooove smoked turkey and have done a few.

 

I've got a pretty long post about it here:

If you have any questions that this doesn't cover, I'll be glad to help any way I can. I'm traveling for the next three weeks but will still check here as often as possible.

 

Good luck. Enjoy. Don't forget to post your Q-view.

I usually smoke mine around 275 or so. Some go higher than than more like 300. Just smoke it until it hits 165-170.Time will depend on the bird size.

What chips do a turkey good?

post #5 of 7

I usually smoke poultry at 300-325 degrees and I like to use apple chips or chunks

I to like to get the smoker temp up there about 300°ish or so. That way you can get it out of the danger zone 40° to 140° in 4 hours. Now I would also take it to about 165° in the breast or 170° in the thigh area. Also the higher temps will help you to crisp the skin too. Enjoy and don't forget the Qview.

Polxc5,

 

This is what you need!

 

Here is a 9:27 minute movie made by the other Jeff (the SMF Boss!) on how to smoke a Turkey.

 

 

This explains it real good:
