A quick note: I recommend that you use the same wood for this stuffing as your turkey. However, it is important to avoid using anything too strong and mesquite-y. You want to enjoy the smoke flavor but the main focus should be on the flavors in the stuffing.

At What Temperature Should Stuffing Be Cooked?

Smoking takes between 35-45 minutes. Once the turkey is removed from the smoker you can put it on the grill to cook.

A turkey should be grilled at 325 degrees Fahrenheit.

You can stuff the turkey with your stuffing and bake it until the meat reaches 165 degrees. To check the cooking time, use a meat thermometer. The USDA states that stuffing should be cooked within the bird to an internal temperature of 165°F. However, stuffing in casserole dishes should be cooked to 165°F.

350°F is the best temperature for stuffing. This will ensure that the stuffing is fully cooked and crispy on the outside. Make sure the turkey is stuffed with the stuffing.
