Hi Skikt22, thank you for sharing your knowledge and experiences.

I was originally planning to cook the turkey at 275.

Yes, I was planning to brine, but not until tomorrow. Do you think 1 day is better that not brining at all? Do you have a favorite brine recipe that has worked well for you that you don't mind sharing?

Given the feedback I've gotton back on this post, I think you are correct, I need to cook high, probably at 350 or higher to get the bird fully cooked by Thanksgiving afternoon. I check the site out that you recommend.

PS....you are making me hungry thinking of the smoked chickens you cooked Sundaym YUM! I just bought my offset smoker over the weekent, and I can't wait to try the slow smoking method soon, but I guess it won't be for Thanksgiving turkey afterall.

Thank you Applehome, this was a very interesting reading, and sounds like if the turkey gets too dry, I can try your experiment. Have a great Thanksgiving and let me know how the turkey comes out this year.

Thanks Professor Salt, appreciate your inputs. I think your right, I'll probably need to keep the heat high to get the turkey done in a reasonable amount of time.
