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.
