Sugarloaf is at an altitude of just a tad over 7000 ft. I add 25% cooking time to my pressure cooker which I use alot. It would make sense to do the the same when smoking meat. Any one have opinions or advice they can share? I'd like to try a 16lb Turkey and a brisket for Thanksgiving. Any help would be appreciated!

My smoker has a hard time when the outdoors temperatures are lower, also in light winds the ambient air around the smoker tends too lowers the internal a temperature of the smoker below ideal temperatures of 200-225 not maintaining a good cooking temperature. I don’t have a big bucks pellet smoker just an electric Brinkmann that’s fun and works great in the summer.

At BB, water boils at about 200F. Low humidity as well. I'd be afraid things would dry out too much. Try the internet for some advice. The folks in Colorado probably have it figured out.

Don't blame me! I was left unsupervised!

Regardless of where you are, smoking/BBQ can be very challenging due to altitude, temp, humidity, wind, type of wood and especially thickness and weight of the items you are cooking.
I have found keeping the temp as consistent as possible is the key but varies greatly from smoker to smoker as design greatly affects function. Running slightly higher temps 250-275* is probably better than struggling to maintain at lower temps which will make it hard to to recover should they go too low.
If you have a holiday cook in your future I would suggest making a test run and taking notes/times so that you have a "baseline" to draw from. If you don`t already have one, do invest in one or two good quality temp probes to insure food is fully cooked, the internet is a great source of tools, recipes and tips that will help a great deal..
Obviously if you smoke a lot you probably know all of this....
Good luck and cheers, SQUATCH

First opinion I found out there.

This thread suggests foil wrap after a few hours. Sounds like a good idea.

Wishing you an Excellent cook !
Are you planning on spatchcocking the Turkey ?
(quick note... poultry cooked/smoked at low temperature will have inedible, rubbery skin.)

No spatchcock as I plan on filling the carcass with herbs and fruit to deal with the arid BB air. As well as a full water pan. I'll deal with the skin with a quick heat blast in the broiler. hopefully it'll make for a crispy skin.

Well folks it's been almost a year since my initial post. What I've found works best for me, is to smoke whatever protein I've picked for a few hours, then wrap and finish it in the oven. I've recently smoked short ribs for an hour and finished them off in the pressure cooker. It's turned into a #1 request at family / work gatherings.

What also works well for ribs, bake in the oven first then finish them off on the grill with your favorite sauce..
