When I smoke butts and ribs I always put 5 or 6 charcoal briquets in my electric smoker to get a good smoke ring. While smoking a turkey do I still use the briquets or not. I have smoked turkey before but I can't remember if I used the briquets. Also do any of you use a small amount of water under the turkey to help with moisture?
