Just bought an entry level smoker - should I even attempt Turkey?

TasyJon | Nov 14, 2005 11:30 AM

I'm usually bouncing all over the place but I'm trying to slow down a bit and injest life at a slower pace.

Along those lines, I have a great gas grill that I often use (not for big dishes). But I've remained open to those who are passionate about real fire, and just bought and entry level grill. It's the type with Grill and side fire box. I cured it this weekend and am ready to fire it up.

Right off the bat I realized I need a remote thermometer.

Secondly I need to but the right fuel, and how does one place it for the desired cooking effect. I was thinking of ribs, but now there's Turkey. Are ther chunks that last 8+ Hours so I can sleep?

I salute those who cook big birds. Maybe I should try a ham :0

Thanks, Jon
