    Vandy from Memphis, TN

    I am new to the website and am looking forward to learning as much as I can about cooking great meat. I am using pellet smokers at the moment but would like to move to a stick burner like a Lang smoker sometime in the near future. I am in the Memphis, TN area and around here it is all about the BBQ, especially pork. I would really like to master smoking a turkey, I have tried several and they all turn out OK but I want to be able to really cook a killer smoked turkey.

      For starters, check out Meathead's Ultimate Smoked Turkey recipe if you haven't already. Second, I would recommend some practice with chickens, since they're pretty affordable. Spatchcock (butterfly) them, which produces an even cooking and faster cooking, and plan on 1.5 hrs @325, or 1.25 hrs (~75 min) at 350-360 for chicken. For turkeys it seems like 2 hrs is the average time at 325. Either way take the deepest part of the breasts, as measured by a good digital thermometer, to 160 preferably (165 max) then pull it off and serve. You simply cannot go wrong this way!

            Hey Vandy. I have smoked a number of turkeys, brining is a must. Cooking low and slow. Previously we have not been lovers of white meat, but smoked turkey and white meat is GONE. Family looks forward to it. Try parts as well before going to the bird.
