    Looks like you know what's going on! Nice looking bird.

    Did the mesquite kicker do much for the flavor? I've pondered it, but haven't tried it yet with poultry.

    Beautiful bird. What temps did you set the smoker at for the first 4 hrs. So 8 hrs total?

    225°, then bumped it up to 300 at the end to get over 165° internal

    Nope, 4 hours total

    Tube Smoker was burning the entire time

    I like a little Mesquite, but not too much, especially on poultry

    Looks good.  Thanks for the details.  I've smoked a few turkeys in my Weber grill and Brinkmann smoker.  Just got the pellet smoker this summer.  Always nice to have someone help you with the learning curve.
