    Going to be having the immediate family over for Thanksgiving. There will probably be about six adults and three kids so we will probably be smoking a small turkey (6 -8 lbs).

    I have smoked and used the 3-2-1 rule and that worked well. I was wondering if there were similar rules of thumb or tips or recipes anyone might be willing to share?

    I have a 30' Smoke Hollow i was planning on using.

    Any advice is greatly appreciated.

    Thanks again,

    Smoke it until the internal meat temp of the breast is 165 & the thigh is 175. I would do it beer can style.
