    First attempt at turkey on the MES. EVOO, pepper and thyme. Smoking at 225, gonna take them up to 165 internal and rest for 20 minutes.

    I will keep it coming... decided to turn it up to 250*. Not rushing it, just wanted a little firmer skin. Not that it will get crispy.

    I love turkey thighs, my favorite part of the bird.

    Holy cow... 1 hour in and I am at 135* IT. Is this possible? I was expecting 3-4 hours on this.
     
  6. Yup it's possible. They don't take very long when I do them either - usually around 2 1/2 hours unless I crank it up to 297* toward the end for the skin... Just make sure you're probe is in the center so you get an accurate IT  [​IMG]
