I am planning on smoking a turkey for the first time on Sunday. Planning on buying one from the local supermarket. (ideas?) Brine it with a recipe that I find on this site. (ideas?) Thinking about using a Mesquite wood chips and oak? Concerns: It appears that I should have the temp inside the smoker to be around 300 degrees. If i can get the smoker to stay at that temp for about how long should it be in there? My smoker does get hot and it might be hard to control the temp to keep it that low. Pics of the smoker are below. It is propane and I have two small steel containers to put the wood chips or logs into. The propane burners do burn real hot and I seem to get more of a fire rather than a smoke. This is a homemade unit that I aquired. Any ideas to help me out. Let me know if you need more pics? I do have a blower motor as well. See bottom pic.
