+1 on the cherry wood! That's all I use anymore. Awesome coloring and flavor. Used too much hickory one year and it tasted more like ham than turkey.
I did 10 eighteen pound birds last year on my Lang 84 for 12 hours @225/250 with nothing but cherry wood and they came out awesome. That was for a senior dinner the day after Thanksgiving. Gearing up to do it again this year.
