When smoking a whole turkey can you place it in a pan while smoking to catch the juices? Do I turn the turkey during the smoking? For a whole 12lb turkey, 5 hours? Helpppppp!!!!!!

Bill, wht kind of wood do you use for smoking turkey,and is there any set temp. for cooking the bird? Someone said 15 minutes per lb etc,and at 375 degrees on my smoker.
I just read in your book about how to slow cook/smoke a turkey. Well, the turkey we have is 20 lbs. The last turkey I smoked was awesome. But this time I decided to check out your ideas. I do like your ideas and I will use them. Here is my question: How long and at what temperature should I smoke a 20 lb’er.
I have a Stump Smoker.
That’s in advance.
God Bless you and your family!
Bill, what wood flavor do you like for smoking turkey. I want this one to be good. I am cooking it at 325 degrees,on my green egg smoker.
Bill I have a large Pitts and Spits unit and while the turkey was cooking I wanted to also cook ribs, chicken, sausage, corn on the cob, sweet potatoes, brisket….and would like to cook at 225-250….I know you said 325 on the turkey but that just won’t work because of my other products….any suggestions on how I can keep it from drying out….12 lb bird
I have had my Lang 60 for about a year and am getting more confident with it, so I decided to smoke a turkey this year but had no idea where to begin. Your email came with the smoking instructions for a turkey and I followed it verbatim. Everyone said it was the best turkey they have ever had. I bought the Competition BBQ Secrets book shortly after I got my Lang. I go on the Smoke Ring site for ideas but find myself going back to the Secrets Book. I enjoy your competition reports and emails.
