  1. Im a fairly novice smoker and needed some tips for my first whole turkey im doing tomorrow. I googled it and it led me here and I couldnt be more happy!! I have read so much my eyes hurt but have learned a lot!! I have an electric master built (the round vertical type)  i got for christmas from the inlaws which does the job but is a pain to load unless you only use the top rack. I think im ready to upgrade to a barrel smoker w/fire box. I know, my rookie is showing. Any way, from what i have learned so far i should be a pro in no time! I have joined many forums in other areas and theres always some A-HOLE with a smart mouth giving newbies a hard time and making them feel stupid...i have yet to see that here which is why im so happy, only good criticism and helpfull tips !!!!!  Thank you all for making my favorite food..BBQ so much more enjoyable!!!
