Times and temps will vary according to preference. Some will smoke at the typcial 225-250, but most will tell you that "hot & fast" is the preferred method for all poultry (and I WHOLEHEARTEDLY agree with this take).

And honestly, the best turkey I ever did was done when the smoker "accidentally" (read: I wasn't watching it close enough) got up to 450 degrees. That turkey was PERFECT in every way!

As with Curt, I put the probe in the thickest part of the thigh (NOT TOUCHING THE BONE). When the thigh hits 165-170 I yank it and let the residual cooking do the rest.
