  1. Today I smoked a small 22 pound turkey on my deluxe UDS with divorced AMNPS box. I know the dangers of cooking this large of a bird. I used hickory splits with charcoal and apple pellets in the AMNPS. I rubbed it down with a Cajun seasoning.Injected with a garlic  butter with Old Bay seasoning. I know the danger of injecting that big of a bird.  When the smoker got to 250° I put the monster bird on. All vents wide open on the UDS.

    I know your thinking food saftey and 250°


    RAW BIRD I thought about spatchcocking it.

    But it was to large to fit the UDS if I did.



    TBS Very thin.


    This is my UDS here is a link to the build. http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/t/...divorced-smoke-chamber-for-amnps-lots-of-pics


    The AMNPS box


    Here is the finished bird.



    So here is how the smoke went 9:35 themp 250°

    11:45 260°

    12:25 270°

    Made a run to the store to get the corn on the cob.

    2:15 330° stuck the maverick in thinking if it is under 140° the dog will be eating turkey

    OH CRAP MY MAVERICK IS BROKE. IT READS 174° in the breast.

    Grab the instant read. Same reading in the other breast.

    It is over done! let it rest with a towel over it.

    The skin is so crispy. Let it rest then sliced.

    That is 4:40 min for a 22 pound bird.

    Happy smoken.
