Yeah, Yeah, ANOTHER Turkey

Gotta luncheon at work on Tuesday so I'm cooking a 21lb bird today. Brined overnight in a simple brine and cooking over cherry chunks and Royal Oak Lump.

This bird 'Turbo'd'! Went out about 2 hours into the cook and heard alot of noise in the cooker....I'm like what the heck?? I immediately know my temp is higher than what my Maverick is telling me and I'm right! This was a big bird and the pit probe was laying on top of the bird, so I was about 25º higher than the reading I was getting. Glad I caught it when I did, so not a big deal, but this 21lb bird cooked in exactly 5 hours....160º breast and 178º in the thighs. Much faster than I prefer, but when I was cutting it up it tasted fine.

Great looking bird Larry.

So,,,,,,let me ask you, did you measure pull temp from one location or did you take an average from left to right side ?

Nice looking bird. Good thing you got ears like a hawk to catch something was up. The folks at work will rave about it!

I put the ET-73 into the breast and set it for 160º and then check the thighs when I pull it off. If they're 165º or above, they're done for me. Typically, they're around 170º-175º.....but yesterday they were 181º when the breast hit 160º.
