No, I don't think it had to much smoke, BUT:
- the cook only consumed 1/2 the hickory chunks (about 5);
- I just cut down some of the kiln dried hickory I use in my big RF offset - it is VERY clean, dry & fast burning wood; and,
- we like a fair amout of smoke, maybe more than some, especially in the rendered skin.
That said, I do think hickory might be a little much for a long turkey cook (i.e., compared to 1/2 chickens) and I think I'll try a furitwood the next time, maybe apple or peach.

Got a bunch of cooking toys and a custom metal fabrication shop where I spend my time building all sorts of smokers & outdoor cooking gear.
