Jive Turkey
« on: November 14, 2023, 06:51:34 AM »
Brown nosing the boss today (not really) but my contribution to the work Thanksgiving Pot Luck

Smoked Turkey with apple wood and threw the potatoes on to get some smoke as well.

220 first 90mins then 325 to crisp skin and close out.

Looks great Bobby..... I've yet to master smoked poultry of any kind - yours looks great!  Potatoes look awesome as well.

I’ve done my share, no expert but I believe I get best results butchering out the bird (chicken or Turkey) I put the dark meat on about 25 mins before the breast and then wings about 20 mins after that.

At minimum I would spatchcock if you prefer and just smoke flat. Just tends to be tricky to run the line of not over cooking the white meat with dark.

Finally, I have learned that first hour to 75 mins run ~200 (smoke flavor). Then kick to 325 to get skin crispy until hit internal temps. I stop breast at 152 degrees and dark meat at 173 and both are very moist and cooked through. Just my thoughts.

Hilarious!  One of my favorite scenes in the movie - and there’s a lot of them….🤣
