I've been harping on the ease of smoking with a WSM, but I guess I've never done it in the cold (a relative term in New Orleans) and wind before. Outside temps in the 40's steady wind in the teens with gusts up to 30. My plan was to smoke at 325 till the Maverick in the thigh was at 170. I can't maintain 325 to save my life. Constant adjusting of the bottom vents to maintain 320 -360, it's a pain. I am worried that the skin will be black instead of brown from the temp spikes. It's just a smoked turkey cause I wanted one, no special occasion, so not really a big deal. I'll post some pics when it's done. SPOG on a 12 lb turkey.
