The spouse came home from work sick this evening.  She craved smoked turkey thighs, and fortunately I had planned on doing them in a day so I had some ready.

Smoked in the rain.

    Looks good Doc. Do you cook them to 180 degrees? Hope the wife gets feeling better.

    Cooked at 250 until I hit 174.  Well marinated in teriyaki and done with a lot of mesquite smoke.

  • Hey Doc, is this an all day smoke or is it done in a couple of hours? Thx

    Four hours.

    For some reason I've never been happy with the results of turkey thighs on my egg. But with that said, the legs come out great. I wonder why.
