I know what internal temp to look for, just wondering the ideal temp to smoke about 12 pound turkey at.

Thank you, Aaron

There are two lines of thought on smoking poultry. Some say low and slow around 225 others will smoke them at 300-350. Personally I find I get more smoke flavor at 225 but a kind of rubbery skin at 325 or so I get some smoke flavor and a crispy skin.

Some that smoke them at 225 will crisp them up on either a grill or in the oven and others take the skin off or eat it the way it is
