The USDA recommends cooking whole poultry to a safe minimum internal temperature of 165 F as measured using a food thermometer. Check the internal temperature in the innermost part of the thigh and wing and the thickest part of the breast. When cooking pieces, the breast, drumsticks, thighs, and wings should be cooked until they reach a safe minimum internal temperature of 165 F. For reasons of personal preference, consumers may choose to cook poultry to higher temperatures.

Above info from USDA site. I smoke mine at 325*-350* and I stuff a small potato in the neck.
