We hope everyone enjoyed their Fourth of July weekend and is excited for more warm weather grilling! This week, we’ll be making these two burgers: Stuffed Portobello Mushroom and Caribbean Chicken, and also eating lots of these Ice Cream Sandwiches in honor of National Ice Cream Month! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

What did I do wrong with my turkey?

edited November -1 in EggHead Forum
I cooked a turkey using the recipie in the BGE handbook. It was only a 10.5# bird. I estimated about 3 hours using the verticle roaster at 300 degrees. The breast was at 160 but the thighs were no more than 169-171. Kept cooking until 5 1/2 hours went by but thigh temp never got above 174. Ate the breasts next day, not bad, little dry. The rest was turned to soup. I thought the thighs need to get to 180 but it never happened. Please explain what went wrong. Thanks
