    ive been reading old posts all morning and can not find exactly what im looking for. if i smoke a 10# turkey at about 300-325 *, about how long will that take? i know to take it till the thickest part of the breast is 165*, but about how long does that take?

    thanks in advance!

    At those temps, about 20 minutes per pound or 3 1/2 hours. Of course that is just an estimate but should get you close.

    Dick has it - but on that temp... 165 should ALSO be attained in the deep thigh. Go to 170 and be sure... 165 makes me nervous.

    Heh... Hmmm I actually DID tell someone like 145 or something once..a BAD typo. Tried for 3 hours to get him notified thru Jeff and the mods as he had logged off and had no public email addy!

    Now don't be spreading rumors... or if I did say that, it was the Jim Beam.. ;{)
