  1. First , Happy Thanksgiving!  Thanks for all ya'll do.

    Ok, 15 pound, spatchcocked bird. Been in smoker for 4 hrs @ no higher than 315 and no lower than 225. Breast and thighs are currently at roughly 163 degrees. Is this normal? I have the bird laying with its head in the middle of the grill , closest to the fire. Should I turn it around? TIA

    [​IMG]You are saying the IMT is 163*f? If so,then it should be done. Take the temp in several plaxces.

    It should be done and ready for a rest...

    Have fun and enjoy...
  3. Yes Sir, but I thought the thighs had to be 175  [​IMG]
