    You can run the temp up for turkey 250 275 your shooting for 165 internal temp.

    If I hadn't replied, welcome to the SMF.
    Did you calibrate the therm? Poultry can be smoked at high temps, if you want a more crispy skin, I have smoked at 450 for an hr., only to drop it to 350 for the duration on chicks. WD had a good one by asking if you've moved the probe to another part of the bird.
