Turkey Bird

Got the turkey on this morning about 8:00. Wrapped it up with EVOO soaked cheese cloth. Upside down and braced with some sausages. the smoking temps have been anywhere from 240 to 280. after 5 hours the breast is at 146 deg.

The bird was still good after holding for 3 hours. I pulled the bird at 166 in the breast and 170 in the thigh. I was trying to get the thigh up to 175 but gave in when the breast went over 165.

Cooking breast down wrapped in cheese cloth makes for one butt ugly looking breast side but once sliced it didn't seem to matter.

I expected more flavor from the brine. May go longer in it next time. I also was worried about the brine not being cold enough after reading more threads but everyone seems to be ok.

Dark meat really takes on the red color from smoking. I know it was done but it noticed that a lot of dark meat was left over.
