Happy Thanksgiving all!
I have truly enjoyed reading the forums. I am going to try and smoke my first turkey tomorrow. I have experimented with the temperature but still don't have it down pat. I can put out a fire with no problem, but maintaining one is a different story. Do you all let the charcoal fully start to burn, get it roaring and then and bring the temperature down to cook or do you ignite the charcoal and let it climb to the temp you want and then make your daisy wheel and bottom trap door adjustments to keep it at that temp? I am having a hard time with letting the temp climb to about 300 degrees and keeping it there without the fire going out. Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated,
