    165˚ at a minimum. That's not my opinion, it's a hard and fast safety rule. As for wood, a mixture of hickory and cherry works well. Since a fatty only smokes for a couple hours, the stronger flavor of hickory will stand out more, and the sweetness of the cherry is a nice complement to it. It'll also help with the smoke ring.

    Glad to see this thread.  I'm attempting my first one this weekend as well.  I won't be doing the same recipe.
  4. when you put in your temp probe try and use the same hole so it does not leak out as much juice and stuffing.
