    I did have stock in pan and elevated it.  The problem was the taste, not the texture or juiciness.  The skin was very crispy.  I didn't use chips but the taste imparted from the charcoal (fogo) was bad.  Didn't expect the smoky flavor with no chips. Also, didn't cook in a pan but on rack.  It was a fresh turkey too.  
    Sorry to hear about the smokey taste. Normally a clean burning fire, one that started in a clean egg and let burn for 30-45min, will impart very little smoke flavor. I cook breads and rolls and pizza with no issues using a lesser liked lump.
    If any of your drippings were making it by your pan and burning or if your drip pan was allowing the fat to burn I could see an off taste...but it sounds like you were set up perfect.

    Could always load the lump to top of fire ring and sear.
    Shut it down and re-use the lump on your next cook.
    Or just drop a smaller cooking grid on top the lump and sear. 
    Or just cave man on the lump.
