Thanks for all the nice comments. I wouldn't normally do a "practice turkey" either Bludawg but this is a new smoker for me and only my second cook on it. I was trying to make sure I knew how it would cook before the big day. By-the-way, I personally like chicken more than turkey.

Punchy,
I "injected a brine" from The Wolfe Pit. See the thread below:

I did 2 turkeys in my WSM last year. First time smoking a turkey also. Turned out awesome! Be sure to brine. I also stuffed some cut apples,oranges, and celery in the cavity along with some seasoning (thyme,rosemary,lemon pepper, etc). For my practice run this year, which I did 2 weeks ago, I poured some of my brine mixture into my water pan and added some more seasoning,celery,etc. Afain, turned out great.
