If you place the turkey on the grate it won't get a soggy bottom. You can also place in a a grate within the pan to catch the juice if you choose to.
The advantage of putting it on the grate is more smoke all over the bird.
as for the second question I don't know what your asking. White meat is all but legs and thighs on a turkey and some are breed to be all white meat. You can buy just the breast secton to if you wish.
I can't believe you got a turkey for 36 cents a pound![/quoteIt was one of those limit of two with coupon and other puchases type thing. My wife cannot go shopping without coupons; she is the one you dont want to be behind in the checkout line.She tends to overbuy when it is a really good buy. I tell her she should have bought so many they should owe her money. That went over like a pine log in the smoker.
