what type of bacon are you making? I wouldn't use a water pan. Are you curing the bacon before you smoke it?

You don't want to smoke the bacon with the turkey.. smoke the bacon at 100deg .. Turkey you want to smoke at a higher temp..

Remember bassrat, bacon is only "smoke cured". In fact (correct me if I'm wrong, Dutch), but most commercial bacon is only chemically cured, and the "smoke" is only smoke flavor.

Bacon is a raw pork product, i.e. until you decide to cook some.

too late bird is all ready in the smoker, bet this is going to be a mess. I cant get temp to 100 about 160-180 is my lowest, i just turned the gas off and using the heat from the wood to maintain a lower temp.
