I have recently purchased a Digital Cajun Injector Electric Smoker and smoked my first turkey in many, many years this past Thanksgiving. I set it at 225 for 7 hours and filled the a-maze-n pellet smoke tray and I inserted the temp probe and closed it up. Temp outside was around 40/45 degrees. I checked the inside temp several times and while the temp did fluctuate it held pretty close most of the time. But after 6 1/2 hours the internal temp was only at 145. I added an hour to the time and checked back an hour later and it was still at 145. I finally gave up and brought it inside and put in oven and finished it off. It had a great smoke flavor and turned out fine but I was disappointed that I had to bring it inside to finish. My question is should I have raised the temp higher? I read in one of the posts where someone recommended 140. Any suggestions.
