Welcome to the forum, Kees. It sounds like you may have gotten a Traeger smoker. If that's the case, you'll find they're great to smoke on. I think Big Al has one and he's a wealth of knowledge if you have any questions. Good luck on your smoke. I'm sure you'll do fine!

Welcome aboard!

One thing I noticed in your post is that you are planning on brining the turkey.

Don't get a self basting turkey, etc. The bird will tell you if butter is injected, etc. and will usually say something like 8% liquid ingredients added, etc.

Look for "natural", and you should see 3-5% added weight due to water from processing the bird. I guess all companies are different so it doesn't hurt to ask the butcher for an all natural bird so you can brine it.
