I picked up a Charbroil 44 in. Vertical Propane Gas Smoker and decided to do my 1st smoke for July 4th, but Hurricane Arthur’s rains skirted S NH and so I delayed the smoke till the 5th. The victim of my first ever smoke would be an 18 lb turkey that was injected with creole butter and smoked using peach wood. The weather was a dry 80 degrees and wind gusts of 25-35mph (stupid time to get a cook going). I decided to split the turkey into 2 halves as with the winds, I figured I might have a fighting chance of a balanced cook. I fired up the smoker at 11:15 to get it up to temp, and got the meat in the smoker at 12:05 Here are my numbers from then on: Time Smoker temp Bird temp 12:052524012:30300531:00290771:30266901:45293972:003191082:15325152:303211223:003181343:153081403:303051443:452971494:003051534:153121574:302911604:452801625:002991635:10291165 I covered the bird for 20 minutes, and carved what my wife called the best turkey she ever tasted.
