    Hey All

    looking for a little guidance :)

    I would like to slow cook my turkey this year.....Not going to smoke it as the wife doesn't love the smoked flavor.

    So i will just put the turkey into the MES add some water and let her cook.

    Question- How long is a 27 Pound turkey going to take?...What temp is best?

    thanks a ton all

  2. I would forget the MES and go to the oven. If your not smoking your just heating and the oven will go to 350° which will cut down on cooking time and give you crispy skin.

    Happy smoken.

  3. I see this is your first post. When you get a chance will you drop by roll call so everyone can give you a proper SMF welcome?

    Happy smoken.

    Steelbone , hello . If you have an oven that is in use , you could 'cook' it in the MES ,and at the temps. Master builts top out , you'll be  slow cooking it and should expect 12min./lb. .at 265*F. . This a only a guestimate 

    for planning cook time , use a probe therm. and go to 165*F in the Breast , The Legs and Thighs should be around 170*F .. However , if my oven was not being used , yes , and save the wear and tear on your smoker...

    Have a great Thanksgiving , and . . .

    At 225 it's 30 mins per pound. At 275 it's 18 per pound. And that's coming from the masterbuilt website
