    How long? HOW LONG?!?!


    Keep the smoker up there for poultry, maybe 250-300 ish. Take all poultry to 170 min. I like mine round 180-190.

    Brining is a good thing, altho with thighs you probably won't have an issue with moistness. Breasts are another ballgame tho.

    Brine em, then toss them in the smoker till the hit 170*. As for time, it takes a turkey thigh however long it takes a turkey thigh to get to 170*. I would (like rich said) smoke in the 250* to 300* range. Give em a spritz every now and again (bout every hour). Good luck.

    LOL...180's OK. Thighs have alot more latitude. A breast, like I mentioned..is a bit more persnickety. We'll discuss brining and foiling and injecting then.

    Congrats..and Q-view!?!?

    PS check out the NEW TIME thread hahahaha!
