This may be too late, but you can generally figure on about 20 minutes per pound at a grill temperature of around 300 degrees. This is where a good instant read meat thermometer is your best friend. Take the temp in the deepest part of the breast and in the deepest part of the thigh starting at about the 15 minutes per pound mark and then about every 15 minutes after that.

The reason you see so many comments on the temp of the bird rather than the cooking time is that some folks cook their birds at 200 - 225 degrees, and others at 275 - 300 degrees or even up to 325.

I cooked a 5.5 lb turkey breast yesterday and it was ready in about 90 minutes at about 300 degrees.

Good luck and good grilling!

At what temperature do you cook bone in and boneless prime rib and how long per pound


13 - 15 minutes per pound @ 300 - 325 degrees F, pull when meat is 125 F - 130 F (internal temp.) for rare to medium-rare. Err on the low side. Allow to rest; the meat will continue to cook while resting. For example, if you cook it to be medium-rare (130ish F), then pull it out of the oven, and let it rest, it will end up being medium to medium-well (140 - 145 F) once cut. So be aware.

Bone-in, bone-out it doesn't really matter, because the bone is not in the center of the meat. It's best to let the prime warm at room temp for a period of time, before cooking. An hour or so from the refrigerator (not frozen).

Some people like to place the prime into a hot (425 F) oven or grill/smoker for 10 -15 minutes, then turn down to roasting temp. This is done to sear the outside, which will give it a crispy/seared outside. This doesn't "lock in" flavor, juices or anything else, it is more of a visual and texture thing. If you do this, the cooking time will be reduced, because the oven/grill will have to come down in temp over a period of time while the meat is cooking. I don't recommend doing this with prime rib. It ends up being overcooked and tough, due to the fast then slow roasting of the meat.

What you want to keep in mind is: roast the meat low and slow. Check the internal temp, with a meat thermometer, early to avoid overcooking. Don't forget the internal temp of the meat will rise after taking it out of the oven. Let it rest for 10 - 15 minutes before slicing the meat.

Meat weighs 2llb 20oz how long should i cook it for we like it medium rare ?


The best thing you can do is to buy a BBQ digital thermometer that you place in the meat during cooking. They have a heavy duty wire with a temperature probe on the end. Sear the meat directly over the coals (or hot side of a gas grill), then move the meat to a cool side and then insert the temperature probe and close the grill lid. Cook until it reaches desired temp, for me 125 degrees is perfect. The total cooking time is hard to judge as it depends on your grill cooking temp, but the digital thermometer takes all of the guesswork out of the equation as to when the meat is done.

How to slow cook food on a char-broil smoker, model CBBA-2750. (what temperature and length of time as well as instructions on how to cook)


Hi hcf6886...

To use your Brinkman Smoker or Other Smokers
1... Marinate or place a rub on the meat you will be smoking, and let it sit for a few hours or overnight in the refrigerator.
2...Cover your wood chips with water(and if you wish you can add some Jim Beam Whisky or other flavorfull liquids in a bowl with the water, 1 inch above the wood chips and use a flat peice of metal (pie pan,etc.)to weigh the wood chips down underwater.
You will do the wood chips at least 24 hrs before you plan to start smoking this gives the wood time to soak in the flavorfull liquids.
3...Start a fire in the smoker having the fire below the meat, but do not put the meat on yet, wait till the flames die down first.
Once they are coated with gray ash, you can place the meat on the racks and add your soaked chips to the smoker.
I would place an aluminum drip pan under the center portion of the cooking area on your smoker, to catch the juices from the meat if you are not using a water pan in that position.
4...Place the meat in the smoker on the grilling surface, and place the wood chips over the charcoal and hardwood in the main grilling area Close the lid and do not open it unless you must add wood chips during the cooking process.
5...Continue adding wood chips to the tray as needed during the time you are cooking.
If you have a Brinkmann or other smoker with one chamber for placing the wood chips and the meat, add wood chips only once per hour.
6...Apply your sauce to the meat one hour before the meat should be done.
Test your meat with a thermometer for for an internal tempreture of 160 degrees for medium and 170-180 degrees for medium well to well
Note: Apply the sauce quickly to avoid loosing the heat in your smoker if you leave it open too long it will allow the heat and smoke to escape, increasing the cooking time.
Close the lid if it needs to continue cooking till you reach the right internal tempreture
7...Test your meat with a meat thermometer after a few hours of cooking time.
Make sure your meat is at least 160 degrees internal tempreture for medium and more than 170 degrees for medium to well.
Close the lid and maintain your heat if it needs to continue cooking.
Please take time to rate me.

Need an instruction manual


It sounds like you have an "offset smoker". The fire goes in in the firebox (the small offset box). If you have a rack that fits in the firebox, you can put that in there too and use it to grill.

Go to www.charbroil.com and click on "instruction manuals" and find the manual for the one that looks the most like yours. Char-Broil took over New Braunfels a few years ago.

Once you have it assembled, there are huge resources on the web on how to use it.

Personally I rarely use charcoal, I prefer the taste of cooking with Pecan wood - if you live in Texas you can buy a 50lb bag at Academy for about 10 bucks.

I grill over the firebox part directly (although I often close all the dampers and let the meat smoke a little while cooking). A few times a year I'll smoke a turkey or other meat in the main chamber, keeping the fire in teh firebox.

My Brinkmann Electric Smoke and Grill (Double) is cooking


I hope your turkey turned out OK. I read all of the smoking and grilling forums and it seemed to be a very common occurrence yesterday that turkeys cooked in far less time that the grill masters thought they would. Could be that most birds are pre-brined and the additional moisture causes the birds to cook faster. Could be that they are leaner than in the past and the fat renders sooner, causing internal temp to rise faster.

I would let it cook and just check the internal meat temperature at regular intervals starting about 15 minutes per pound.

At what temperature was your smoker running during your cook?

Can you please give us instructions on cooking a 13.6 lb turkey in the Char-Broil Electric Smoker?


Hi - did you get an answer to your question?

It's not very hard.

Prep your bird - rub the outside well with olive oil and whatever dry rub you want - inject it if you want to - and put some fresh herbs (sage, thyme, rosemary) and/or some cut up citrus in the body cavity.

Let your smoker get up to temp, put your chips in the pan, and when you see smoke, put the bird on the top cooking grate (I did mine with the water pan in, but no water, just lined with foil, and kick back for a while.

About three hours in, I would check the internal temp of the bird with a good instant read meat thermometer and start watching for the 160 deg temp.

When she gets there, pull the bird, foil loosely for about 20 minutes and then carve her up!

Hope all turns out well!

Cook Times


For the turkey, should be between 20 - 25 minutes per pound. About 20 minutes per pound for the ham, if memory serves. This is after your smoker comes up to temp and you start to see smoke from your smoke chips/chunks.

At about 20 minutes per pound, take the temp of the ham and turkey with a good instant read meat thermometer.

Also, I generally don't use water in the water pan for hams and turkeys, but that is a personal preference. If you put water in your pan, it'll probably take a few more minutes per pound.
