+1 i did a 7 pound roaster last weekend with that pop up thing left in, When the bird was done it had never popped out had i waited for it would have been dry .Little Steven said:I think that little pop out thing goes off at about 220*. Use your thermapen Luke
+1 Doc i agree toss all the plastic outDoc_Eggerton said:LOL, indirect on the Egg is no different than in an indoor oven, so you could leave the pop-out thermometer. But it serves no purpose for you. The plastic on the tail is just for handling the bird, and is in the way of removing the innards. I recommend removing all plastic accoutrements on your turkey.
