does anyone else do this?

i have a brinkmann smoker and access to plenty of free cherry and hickory wood, so every couple of months i fire it up and load on a giant family-size package of london broil, a turkey, a ham, some country-style ribs, or whatever i've picked up lately. and since i know i'm going to have to keep the fire going for 6-7 hours at least, i usually fill in whatever empty space is left on the racks with some chicken, just to make it more worth the time.

one drawback is, when cooking a turkey, after hours of being saturated with smoke it often looks black as coal. but it sure tastes yummy

I don't think I have ever done a turkey on mine. I sure like to do chickens and pork shoulders though.

We actaully just got our smoker put together a couple days ago we will be trying it on Saturday. We are starting with ribs and for labor day we will attempt the turkey. It is a cheap electic one but a start.

I do a little bit of smoke'n and bbq'n. Poultry is great when you can buy it NOT in a solution so you can brine it when you get it home.

I'll try anything on the smoker but our fav is probably brisket.

Yes! We got one about 3 months ago and I have been using that thing like crazy! I have mostly done:

- Pork shoulder roast/steaks
- Pork tenderloin
- Pork chops (boneless)
- Baby backs and spare ribs

Smoking is such an awesome adventure. At first I had no clue what I was doing; and now I finally feel competent. About three hours ago I pulled some ribs off the smoker that literally fell off the bone. I was so pleased

I would LOVE to hear other smokers' adventures!
