Glad you joined us Tinner and congrats on the new MES! :welcome1:
Do a little research here on the forums and I would suggest a first smoke of pork butt for some pulled pork before you do your turkey as it is a forgiving smoke that will allow you to get use to using the MES and also add some tasty seasoning to the MES.

Hello and welcome from East Texas. This is a great site, lots of information and great people that are willing to throw in their two cents worth on about anything.
