I had an old electric range that I converted into smoker. It is working good but I was looking for input from more experienced builders. I am planning on smoking a couple of turkeys using a honey brine recipe for thanksgiving.
I have cooked a butt in in last weekend, did some modifications and just took a center cut porkloin out.
Wondering exactly what Ya'll look for in a great smoker to see of I need to do more or maybe less to my build.

To me it looks great. I will say it might be too small for 2 turkeys. Be one at a time anyway. Perfect for some family cooks. If you have good heat control and it holds fire for a long cook I think you have a winner.

I made 2 charcoal baskets for it. One will last about 4 hrs until I have to start opening the intake a little. I can usually keep it going another hour or so (this is maintaining the temp at 225-230) I will have the other basket getting ashy and then swap them.
Also I have 3 racks and I will butterfly the turkeys. Hope they come out good......to be on the safe side I think I will follow your advice and do them separate.
