Turkey/poulder question

I am planning on smoking a turkey thursday and I'd like to ask the forum if it is a good idea to insert a polder probe in the breast when the bird goes on. Is there a concern that this will cause the juices to run out the whole and make for a dry bird?


  • JPinAZ,
    there really isn't any need to stick one in the breast for a number of hours. . .even if you did stick one at the beginning, i doubt that you'd lose much juice . .and when you do go checking for temps, the best place to stick it is in the meatiest part of the thigh. . .[p]best way to test when a turkey is done is [p]a. stick a skewer into the fattest part of the breast and thigh and see if the juices are running clear and
    b. wiggle a drumstick, if its nice a lose, rotating on its joint with the thigh. . .you're done. . .[p]
