turkey temps??

  1. what is the highest temp I can cook my turkey at? I want the skin to stay crisp and still get a good smoke flavor. the only other thing that will be in the smoker is some wings.

    I always smoke my turkey's at 300 - 325 F and get awesome crispy skin and all the smoke I want. Never use a water pan for them either. Here's a pic of one I made last month or so using cherry wood, and smoked at 325F-



    Hope your smoke turns out well, and don't forget to take pics!

    Chop some leftover smoked turkey, add in some miracle whip till nice an creamy, a bit a ground pepper an some celery stalk ifin ya like that, maybe just a bit a chopped onion.

    Some good bread an a fine sammie fer sure!
     
  6. Thanks for the help guys. I did the 300-325 and it turnd out really good. Sorry no pics to share. I was about 1/2 way into the smoke when my prob thermomiter went out on me[​IMG] So I had to run up to the target and buy a new one. Dose anyone know if a bad prob would make it read off temp? I got a new one but its not the same so I could not test my theroy.
