    Started at 1 today...just pulled it at 5.  IT in breast was 165 thigh was 162...Im safe with that right?  Im not eating for an hour so it has a chance to rest.  Im nervous.  First turkey! Ran the smoker 300-325 and it looks great.  Just checking my IT's

    I would tightly wrap it in foil as soon as it comes out of the smoker, and then let it rest. The internal temp should rise a few more degrees. Other than that, it should be good to eat.
