National BBQ Month sure was tasty! We hope you got to try just as many new BBQ recipes as we did and some old favorites as well. If not, you can find all our BBQ recipes here and try them out all summer long. One of our favorites was Dr. BBQ’s Spare Rib Surprise and Ted Reader’s Rum Injected Sweet Potatoes. As the weather’s heating up, use your EGG for a cool treat-Ice Cream Sandwiches! Keep an eye out for some Father’s Day recipes from chefs & their dads, coming soon!

Pop up thermometer in Turkey

edited 12:12AM in EggHead Forum
I have a 5 lbs Perdue Turkey Breast with a plastic pop up thermometer.
Can I use this in the BGE or do I have to remove it before cooking? This is my first bird on the BGE and I would appreciate any advice.

    In the trash can with it. Use your meat thermometer, and pull off when the breast reads 165.

    Thomas,[p]It works fine in the Egg!! I have used both it and a Polder to check and the thing popped around 167 deg - that's what the Polder read when it popped out. Use it - works fine. I have since used it along with the Polder 3 more times and its always very close to 165 deg.[p]Tim
