One of the family members prefered the smoked turkey over the Big Easy turkey. I love fried turkey so the Big Easy had my vote.

Big Easy turkey was done in two hours. Breast meat temp was 168 and the thigh meat was 182 when I checked it. The skin was vert crisp until I foiled it and put it in a towel lined cooler. Then it softend up to much for my liking.

I noticed that the maverick probe slid into the thigh meat on the Big Easy turkey like hot butter. On the smoked turkey there was much more resistance even after it was done.

I have read where someone was putting chips in the bottom of the unit but I think they were having problemes with the chips burning up.

I purchased mine at Lowe's.
