I bet this has been discussed a bunch on this site, but I am such a new BBQ guy that I just need some help.

I want to cook a turkey in the pit for Thanksgiving. Please tell me how to do it, or at least point me toward the appropriate threads, Thanks.

Oh yeah, how about ham too?

I know it's early but I want to practice a little before I debut. Planning ahead should increase the odds of a success I think.

By the way, do you or anyone else recommend those remote temperature probes? If so, which ones are good?
