    Question, in my old smokey electric smoker how much water do I put in the pan when cooking a pork shoulder?

    I tried cooking turkey wings no water in the pan, and dry chips, they were to tough and dry.

    I'm not familiar with your smoker, but I would fill the water pan up & keep it full the entire smoke.

    Also don't soak the wood chips.

    Do you have a reliable thermometer to measure the smoker temp & the meat temp?

    The turkey wings sound like they were way overcooked.

    Most factory therm & temp controllers are way off.

    A lot of us use Maverick therms, 732 or 733.

    They have remote receivers on them so you know the pit & meat temp even if your inside watching TV.
