    Ok, so thanks to everyone. I hope you all have/had a great Thanksgiving!! Both birds turned out GREAT! Put them on before 8am and we ate at 4. Temps were perfect, and actually had to dial back the heat for the last 2.5 hours. About to pass out from turkey and beers, but before I do, here's...

    That's a great idea! I think I'll try that for future use. Definitely going to try to take finished pics!!

    Took the duct pipe off, smoke seems to be rolling good. Watching the temps closely.

    Ok, thanks. This will be an adventure. Rethinking the vent pipe now...

    Thanks, good points indeed! I will start out with it at the garage door and try to get the pipe as straight/vertical as possible, with as little horizontal as possible. Maybe I take the contraption off and just vent it outside (yes, it is wide open in the configuration I have currently).

    That right there is my biggest concern: too long in the danger zone. UGH! I will probably only add chips for half the cook time, I don't want it too smoky, and the family probably won't either. Looks like I may be using the oven after all. This may be more of a chore than first thought...

    I'm planning on 275, that's the highest this MES will go. I could leave it open, I don't think it will be too cold for the smoker. Maybe more for me though LOL.

    I will definitely go by temp, just hoping to get a good idea of start time. Would hate to budget 9 hours and be done in 5. If it's within an hour I'm fine with that. Hoping not to have to use the oven as we only have one and that will be full of sides. But I will if need to for sure!

    Thanks, yes I'll make sure it does. Will need to rig it outside the door, but shouldn't be a problem.

    Ahh, ok. I wasn't planning on spatchcocking (wanted a full turkey presentation for both tables). Hmm, I'm thinking maybe plan on 8-10 hours???

    On a related note, anyone ever done 2 turkeys at the same time in a MES before? Both are 14ish pounds and I know they'll fit, no problem. Just curious about cooking time. I see everything from 15-20 mins per LB to 20-40 mins. That's a big difference. Be nice to know what time to start them...

    Yes for sure. I have a bluetooth unit and will be using multiple probes. Thanks!

    Definitely! I will be monitoring it constantly. Just always leery about fumes, combustion in a garage like that.

    WOW! Fantastic looking pie, and love the topping choices. I'll take one of those please!

    Any thoughts on this?

    So I'm going to smoke 2 turkeys tomorrow. Turkeys have been brining, sides are being pre-made, house is clean, beers are cold. Tomorrow is supposed to be cold and rainy/snowy here and I don't have anything to cover the smoker with. I thought if I kept the box in the garage with the small door...

    Major Screw Up on Cheese!

    Thank you, that was a huge concern for me!

    Major Screw Up on Cheese!

    OH NO! It's one thing to ruin your cheese, but another man's cheese? That's bad!! I guess that makes me feel a little bit better, thank you.

    Major Screw Up on Cheese!

    Thanks, that makes sense. Any concern over the creosote I had to "wash" off some of the cheese?

    Major Screw Up on Cheese!

    I've smoked cheese a few times before and had nothing but great results. Saturday however I messed up big time! I had 3 trays of assorted cheeses in the smoker (got a little too comfortable and greedy perhaps), using my AMNPS only. Temp outside was around 50 degrees and I had cherry wood...
