    Will be waiting, don't forget to get that bird from 40-140 degrees in 4 hours. Get it straight from the fridge to smoker for best results. [​IMG]

    Hey guys I didn't forget bout yas just after that long smoke yesterday I was exhausted! Here's the scoop.. turkey came out great. Very juicy amazing flavor smoke was a lil heavy but not to overpowering. The family n friends loved it.not a prominant smoke ring not sure y thi didn't happen any thghts? I still have a lot of tweaking to do with the new smoker but other then no smoke ring I was very happy with end result of the bird. On a side note I started using kingsford hickory briquettes. And they where awful burned through a whole bag in prob 6 hrs they didn't get hot enough and just burned out to quick. So me being the genious I am thght to myslef "self y the hell didn't you check the forums to see what good charcoal to use" now I knw many will say lump but I can't seem to find any good lump around here just the cowboy lump and I've read here to stay away from that lol. So I read and read and the next best alternative charcoal I could finf from the posts I read on forums was stubbs. I gotta tell you the diffrence was night and day. It heated up quico got to a good internal temp in the chamber and stayed there for a long time! This will now be my starter charcoal of choice once I start going to mostly wood fires. At one point I was sure I had achieved the thin blue smoke but both my cell phone and my wifes where to dead to take a pic so it will have to wait till the next smoke. I will post turkey pics soon. Hope every1 had a great weekend!
