  • Re: I'm an idiot (simple turkey question)

    I think that little pop out thing goes off at about 220*. Use your thermapen Luke
    +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 . 
    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.
    +1 Doc i agree toss all the plastic out
