    What temperature to cook my turkey at?

    I am following meatheads guide for smoking a Turkey. It says to smoke it at 325, I am using a pellet smoker that has temperatures at 300 and 350. Which temperature should I cook it at?

    I’d assume your pellet smoker varies up to 10-15 degrees around the set point so I’d go at 300 versus risking too high temps.

      I'd strongly recommend 350F if you're looking for properly cooked skin on your bird. Lot's of folks around the Pit like to go even higher with poultry ... like 400F. Personally, I always shoot for 350.

        I smoke it at 225 until it. Reaches an internal temp of 140. Then I up the temp to 325 until the breast is 160 and the thigh. 175.

        No pellet cooker here, but cooked 73 turkeys Thanksgivin of 2019, afore th Strange Days...

        Offset cooker.

        Given yer situation, I would:

        Go with 350°, watch it close, when it gits close to done.

        Best of luck, an Happy Thanksgivin to yer self, ann alla yall, thereabouts!

              If you really want to get turkey skin crispy, i favor this recipe to make chips.

                Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

                We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5″ x 29.5″ footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.

                The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One


                The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.
