• Perfect temp for maximum smoke flaver without to much drying out on a 22 lb turkey? Thanks for any help😉

    twigg267 Depends on what you are seasoning it with and if you injected it with a seasoning that has phosphates in it or not. A lot of people do 225 the entire way and if you injected it that really should be okay as that will keep it from drying out. If you have the time try the below. I would still recommend that you follow that either way but a 22 lb turkey is gonng take a very very long time with this schedule, somewhere above 10 hours!

    1 Hour at 150° with no smoke or humidity
    1 Hour 160° and begin smoking and adding humidity
    175° until internal temperature reaches 165° (Figure 1/2 hour for each lb of turkey)
