    Hey all from Kansas. What a great site.
    All I have is an old bullet smoker that I couldn't ever get to work great until I found this site and found the modifications for them. Done the mods, followed some recipies here, put in a 12lb natural turkey and it turned out fantastic.
    Thanks a bunch.
    I know most advise agin a larger turkey but after such great success with my first one I decided to give a 19lber a go. Brined him for 12 hrs and put him in the smoker at 3:30 this morning. Figured if it looks like he won't make it by noon that I would finish him off in the oven. I am able to get and keep my bullet right at 300 so will see what happens.
    Better go out and check him.............Later, Nohog
    A side note....the jug by the smoker is some peach wine that I made and this is what I used in the water tray. I personaly was pulling on a bottle of my homemade elderberry wine all afternoon.....was a great day of smokin'.[​IMG]

    Welcome to the forum. That's a good looking bird. Good luck on today's smoke. You should be just fine with a 20 pounder as long as you maintain the 300 degrees.
