32 Smoked Turkey Thighs

Basically a photo essay.  These are not for any specific meal, but get stripped and frozen in packs for a lot of our lunches when we are on the program.  Smoked turkey thighs and reheated veggies done on the Egg the night before for dinner.

Well marinated in teriyaki, and done indirect at 250 until the internal is 175.  Mesquite for smoke.

These were split between the XL and the LBGE.  I have cooked a couple of things on the LBGE lately that I had only done on the XL before.  It is interesting to note how it cooks differently.  Same carefully monitored temps and the LBGE was done 30 minutes before the XL.  Last night the pizza cooked differently as well.  I believe, in part, that when cooking indirect the LBGE has less room around the PS and/or stone and this makes a difference.  In each case the dome and Mavrick temps were the same as I would expect in the XL.

There are certain cooks I am just going to do on the XL because I like the way they turn out.

Working on a beef rib roast for separate report right nowl

    Slow smoked turkey, that is well marinated in teriyaki tastes sweet, not salty.

    Perfect thanks.  I like the idea of cooking in quantity and then portioning for later when trying to lose weight.  It takes much of the planning stress out.  Wanted to check if it was salty before I scale up some for me - although I won't jump in as big as you - 32 turkey thighs is a ton.
