Pullin' a Turkey

Pullin' a turkey for a X-mas Eve party. I smoked one on thanksgiving and got it right on the 1st try. What do I need to know about pulling it. I've done pork butt and I don't know if pulling a turkey will get me the same results or not. I'm thinkin' maybe just basically seperate the meat from the bone and sort of a combo of chopping it up and pulled and into the pan.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Sounds to me like you are on the right track pyrolysis. Just because I am curious, what are gonna do with it after you pull it? Sammies?

Never had pulled turkey…I always figured it would be too dry, what with virtually no fat. Might be good in a turkey devonshire or maybe a turkey salad sammich or how about turkey croquettes! :shock:

Good idea ultramag! I'm sure I'll try it with as many combinations as I can come up with starting out with the a-la-by itself combo.

The way this smokin' has gone for me I just hope for my quests sake I'm able to save them some. After all good intentions when I start I have a tendency to hoard the finished probucts and only tell the buds about what they missed, after the fact.

Did a turkey recently and pulled it at 185deg let it rest for 2hrs then pull off bone chopped thr white meat, dark meat fell apart threw it all in a large iron skillet and use some Jack Daniels Q-juice(lightly) and served on buns with slaw turned out great... :D
