Thanks for the input about the long themo!
Cooked 18lb turkey yesterday;my second one ever,did my homework on the thread [or so I thought],brined the bird for 1 1\2 hrs rinsed and dried it ,put it in uds side temp 325 side temp.Little maple chunks for some smoke and let her go;boy did she ever smoke!!!!!
Took a look in 2 1\2 hrs to see if it was time to put in the spuds and the bird was already done!I was thinking it'd take another hour or so but bird came off @3:30,done.
Middle temp must have been 400+.
Bird was excellent!Fed 14 people with lots left for lunches.
I was really lucky! MUST get to wallyworld for the long thermo!
Lovin that UDS ,Happy Easter, Bros!
