    the guage in my smoker is the one that came with it and doesnt read worth a crap it is off by more than alittle so I kinda wing it but have been doing it for a number of years now with out one now and kinda know by the way it is going when to add more or back it off a bit I believe it was around 180 - 200 for the most part of the smoke mopped it every hour and when the temp hit a buck 80 in the bird i let it bark up a bit more while i cut up the two chickens i did today to and then removed it from the smoker It was in the smoker for about 7-8 Hrs hung close to the fire box wanted to hurry it up a bit without burnin it up so had to emprovise with a bit of foil to make sure no flames got close makin a make shift fire wall of sortes but it has plenty of juices flowin from the portion i cut open hope everybody likes it tomorrow. But I really hope to buy a few good guages to use in a couple different smokers so i can keep a better eye on things.

    We still have to drop it off at my wifes aunts house where she will unstuff it and restuff it with dressing and throw it in the oven hope its good i seen those threads it worries me as turkeys are so much bigger than chickens !

    Once she got it out of the oven it was very tender and juicy done to perfection but I am going to get a new guage for temp and i took ya'lls advice and ordered three digital probes thanks for all the help.
