Hello, I have a Char Broil electric vertical smoker. I want to do a turkey for some friends on Super Sunday. All I can get are hickory and mesquite chips in my area. I know I need apple but I don't have a choice. Also, how many chips should I normallly use. I tried making jerky once ( the 1st and only time I've ever used one) with mesquite chips and used 2 handfuls directly on the heating element. What is a normal amount of wood chips?
