Just got a Landmann GOSM. Seasoned it. Has rained every day!!!!! Father's day for the old man plan to smoke a turkey (frozen not fresh kill....gonna inject instead of brine as it wont be defrosted until right before cooking time) and some ribs. I know ribs gotta go low and slow around 225 or so but I worry the turkey skin wont get crisp.....any thoughts???
First time smoker....need a little advice

Nopw I thought of several things and all the folks before me told you just about everything that you need to know about your smoke. Now I would recommend jerry's advice and throw the bird into the oven for the crisping of the skin.
Could use a touch of help...Ok.....smoker steady at 230 with turkey and 3 racks of ribs in. Took a while to get temp steady with all the meat but now not really smoking. Is something wrong or just takes a while to smoke again after adding the ribs and getting temp back up? Help appreciated?
Looks good. You may want to alternate your ribs every so often to keep them cooking even. The top rack is hooter than the ones below. You can move your therm around to get a good feel of the temps at different places in your smoker.
I moved around earlier. Had 3 racks and really had to struggle to make 2 fit on same rack (top rack) without overlapping. Thanks to all for the advice so far...I cant wait to eat...hope it all tastes as good as its looking and smelling!!!!!!
