    Smoker turkey is awesome isn't it? I might try to score a smaller leftover bird at the grocery to stash away for later use

    I'm going to try a pork shoulder here soon.

    I really need to figure out how to add more charcoal without generating cold sooty smoke though.

    So you keep lighting it in the starter and dumping it in? Right? That makes sense. I started trying to light it in the fire tray from my other smoker, but that didn't really work.

    I'll be heading to Home Depot shortly. Too bad the firebox isn't designed with this in mind.

    Second the chimney starter. Also love pork shoulders and pork butts for pulled pork BBQ. My favorite being eastern NC style.

    quit using charcoal! use it to get it started if you must, but let that go away before adding meat, then just feed wood into the fire.

    done and done.

    This too. Actually how I do it. Sometimes I will throw a lump or three of lump charcoal on but just use wood once it gets going.

    I would stick to cured hickory if I could find a good source of logs around here. Best I can do is the home depots bags of chuncks. Those burn too fast to be useful as the base for a long smoke.

    Lump mesquite charcoal is available to me. Cured mesquite or hickory, or really any other useful cooking wood, not so much.

    I'm looking for a place where I can buy half a cord of hickory that's been cured and split.
