Hey all, I smoked a 14lb bird yesterday in preparation for today. The one detail I didn't really consider is the reheating part before dinner.

I used the search feature here but didn't find anything on whole birds.

I figured I'd use the oven since I need to crisp the skin anyway but I DO NOT want to dry it out. It is very moist.

What Temps would you guys use in the oven? Say 200 to bring up to 140-150 internal then blast it under the broiler to crisp? Could I go hotter and faster perhaps?

I also have the ceramic grill and mes30 as options

I'm not sure you'll be able to get the skin crispy again w/o drying out the bird. Unless you remove the skin, and crisp it up separately. Maybe someone has done it successfully. I've never tried to be honest. Let us know what you do and how it worked out.
I have never reheated a whole bird either. PM chef jimmyj chef jimmyj , he should be able to give you an answer.

Have you missed this thread?

I ended up wrapping it in foil then popped in the oven on 300 for an hour and 15 minutes. This got it up to 110. I broiled it for 8 minutes and the skin rendered out and crisped up. It was moist as ever. Not alot left though.
