  1. Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

    I have a 7# turkey breast in my 40" mes smoker.I am using a Amnps smoker tray with cherry,hickory,and apple pellets. I was wondering how long I need to leave the tray in for the desired amount of smoke?

    It's a matter of preference on how much smoke. For turkey I fill my AMPS half way. ( 1 and 1/2 of the rows with pellets.)  And that gives me plenty of smoke for the bird.

  3. Hickory might be a bit powerful for turkey. You don't want to over-smoke it.
