Smoked turkey
« on: November 28, 2010, 08:24:32 AM »
Hey Everyone,
I am going to smoke a  10# wild turkey today.  I brined it for 24 and dried for 24.  My concern is the smoke/cook time and also the turkey had its skin removed.  Is there any tips for these ?'s and concerns.
Thanks

I would put some bacon on it, that will help keep the surface moist.

I would smoke it @250F until your desired IT. Domestic birds that is 165F.

I think I read "how long should I smoke this old bird"

Most people put two to four hours of smoke on poultry, it depends on how much smoke flavor you want.

Poultry really takes the smoke well, and you can't "un-smoke" it.

It also depends on what flavor of smoke you use. Mesquite and Hickory tend to be stronger than some of the other woods.

Yep, sorry.  I meant smoke time. Thanks.  I plan on 2 hrs of smoke and 3-4 hours in the oven @ 325^
