Default quick questions! turkey smoking NOW!

I have a 14 lb bird in my masterbuilt dual fuel, and the breast is sitting at 155. Does the darker meat need to be over 160? I have heard different things. thanks in advance!

It needs to be 165 degrees or it will be bloody.

Most people take the breast to 165 degrees and thigh to 185 degrees. The thigh can be more forgiving if the temp is higher, so go with the breast temp.

I've only done bone in turkey breasts, never a whole turkey. I normally pull those at 160, and let them rest 30 minutes. I have seen things saying to take the dark meat to 170, and i wondered if that was legit or just hear say.

I used to pull at a 170 breast, but have since found larger birds 18lbs+ to cook another 10 degrees after pulling. So -- I now pull at 160 (unless a smaller bird).

I cook 'till the thigh is at least 165 and the breast seems to always work out to be fine - not sure what temp the breast ever is.
