Default Little Thanksgiving help???

Im doin my first turkey on my drum smoker.What I was wondering is it is also the 1st time im using wood that is not chips and I got right out of my back yard.The hickory looks like it has a little bit of mold on the bark,does this matter??


And also do I cook the turkey in a pan or put it directly on the grill??

Can you remove the bark?
Also be careful not to over smoke it hickory may be too strong of a smoke.
others may chime in but just my $0.02

Take the bark off and I agree hickory may be to strong, just use 1 small piece if you do. Apple would be a better choice for poultry.
You can cook in a pan or on the rack with a pan underneath.

Yeah I heard that hickory may be too strong.I was going to use 1 piece of hickory and cherry wood chips.But I may just use the cherry wood instead.Im pretty sure I can debark it though.

Thanks,for the help,Much appreciated

I cook mine at 325º-350º, bird on rack with a drip pan below. Be careful, any wood you use if to much will make a very smokey bird, you will be burping the smoke taste. A little smoke goes a long way with Poultry.

You will probably get enough flavor from just using lump charcoal. Even without wood you will be able to tell the deferents than an oven bird and it will have a smoky flavor without being too overwhelming
