    Extending a smoking time

    I have two meats that call to be smoked with pecan wood and two that call for hickory.

Is it common...

    As long as the meats fit, will any cooler suffice for maintaining 4 to 8 hours of heat?

    Turkey

    thanks for the help and replies. My wife is pretty adamant about just a rub and then me smoke it. Now I am curious, those of you who use hickory, do you use straight hickory all the way or do you toss in another wood towards the end to even the flavor?
