    ^^^this. You can also just chuck a couple of pellets into the firebox for testing purposes. Should start smoking within a couple minutes.

    For Seattle area mags, I have a 5yr old Traeger I'll be getting rid of soon (I upgraded a couple years ago and never use the old one). It's not working now, but I plan to fix it up in the next couple of weeks. Mags will get first dibs once I get it working again.

    Riser, if you really want to keep it dirt bag simple and cheap, just use a Weber kettle for smoking. Only thing it wonít do is scale up for huge amounts - but I routinely do two pork butts at a time or 4 slabs ribs.

    for temps, anything thermoworks is the tits but you donít even need the smoke that someone linked above. You can get their dot single cable thermo in the $20s and for air/smoke temps I just use the thermometer off my Weber gas grill and stick it in the vent holes in the lid

    Yep. Smoked the bird on the grill yesterday. It’s the only way.
    Start on the grill. Transfer to a pan with some water. Turn off the burner under the bird. Tray of wet hickory chips under the other burner.
    Wait for it. And enjoy

    My 20yo took charge of the bird yesterday and killed it. Used a recipe from TikTok (I guess it's good for something), a person named Max the Meat Guy. Moist and delicious.

    It's crazy how much talk there's been on social media dogging on turkey as a main dish for Thanksgiving. That just tells me that they have no idea how to cook it. Turkey can be amazing if cooked properly.

    6th or 7th year in a row of frying the bird. Comes out great every time. Peanut oil is expensive AF, might have to switch to 5W30 next year.

    Successfully smoked a turkey last night on my Green Mountain Grille.

    Question: I live at around 5k feet and have found that actual smoking times are usually 25% faster than a given recipe. It's not the smoker as this is my third smoker.

    Anyone else have a similar experience? I don't know if it's the altitude or high desert.

    I post this every year and feel like it gets ignored every time. People cook poultry to death for no reason.

    Yes, it's crazy! A dry bird just means you have no clue what you are doing.

    No, still have it. Still haven't got it working again. I think it needs a new board, but I need to call Traeger.

    Smoked turkey last year. Better than a not smoked turkey. Only 5 of us this year so I made baby back ribs. Way better than turkey.
