    No worries that is flavor clouds filling the air. All will be most excellent

    I went indirect with a pan to catch the drippings.. We'll see. I'm sure you'll be fine. Have a Tennessee thanksgiving.

    No issue. I cook chickens and turkey breast all the time with no drip pan. It smokes but that's what a smoker does. It always tastes great. Don't worry about it. Smoke clouds tells the hood I'm cooking. After awhile the smoke output drops anyway

    Just don't want it to taste too smokey, inlaws don't care for it.  I'm sure it will be fine.  Thanks and you have a great one to.  Go Vols :D

    "Have a Tennessee thanksgiving."

    I don't know what that means, but if that were directed at me my initial inclination would be to say "No thank you".

    Yeah, once I considered the source I figured he meant something like that.  Happy Thanksgiving to all of you.

    @henapple, you should be thankful I'm not there.  More food for you.
