    New Smoker from North Carolina, voted one of the two best Carolinas

    Hi from the Piedmont region of NC. Been a backyard griller for years and now am getting into smoking with an 18.5 WSM smoker. Learning the ins and outs of it, been watching a lot of YouTube videos. Just bought the Meathead book and think it is fantastic! I'd like to smoke a turkey on it and want to practice over the next couple of weekends. I am wondering how people setup their WSM to capture the juices like in the book. Can folks shed some light on that for me?

      Welcome to The Pit.

      Sorry, but I don't have a WSM, so I can't help.

        Welcome from the California Delta. Don't own a WSM. But I'm sure someone will be along soon who does.

            Welcome fellow North Carolinian! I have a WSM and have smoked my share of turkeys on it. The way I set it up is by putting a large roasting pan on top of the lower grate, directly under the bird. Keep your water pan in place under the grate but line it with 2 layers of HD Reynolds wrap aluminum foil and leave it empty. You don't want to use water because it will keep the skin from getting crispy. There you have it, that's my set-up!

              Greetings and welcome from North Carolina, neighbor!

              Do your trials with large chickens. Similar results and way cheaper test subjects. Just did a 8lb chicken on the kettle with great results. Just 2 cents.

                            The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy


                            The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.

                            The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted


                            Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.

                            The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One


                            The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.
