Thread Starter 
hello folks. just found this website while trying to locate some information. I hail from Northern California, and have been smoking (meats) going on 3 years. Still learning and trying different ideas. just tried a small turkey.. .he didn't turn out as well as i had hoped. Couldn't keep the smoker at a constant temp :(

Re: and 'nother newbie

didn't brine him... problem was keeping smoker up to temp. using a smoke and grill unit the one with warm ideal and hot on the temp gauge. went out and got a "real' temp gauge. was also thinking of modding the top of the unit with some type of sliding opening to see if I can adjust the temp better. Did a ham for thanksgiving and turned out perfect ( as usual), didn't brine him either.

Welcome JC, glad you found us. I have yet to brine any of my smoked poultry, and all have turned out great. I do want to try a brine eventually, to see what the difference is. Welcome!
