Poultry / DivotMaker's Thanksgiving Turkey question
« on: November 20, 2020, 09:49:02 AM »
Hi All,
I'm planning on smoking a turkey and was gonna use DivotMakers recipe.
He calls for 3oz of cherry. I"m just starting out, so I don't understand the 3oz of cherry concept. Can someone explain what this means.


Model 1 - The Little Guy!! / new Model #1...need advice
« on: July 14, 2020, 12:50:00 PM »
I just received my model #1 yesterday. I immediately unboxed it and began the seasoning process. I'm a newbie, so reading a lot on this forum and trying to absorb the info.
The seasoning process began at 2:30 pm and I turned it off at 6:30. I checked on it about an hour later and smoke was coming out of the vent! Checked on it again two hours into the seasoning
( 4:30 ) smoke. After further research, I'm assuming the wood caught fire because the first smoke I saw was white, it only smoked for about an hour, and the box contained ashes.
I attached a few photos. Is this what it should look like? I opened the box at 10:30 pm to see what the wood chunks looked like and I freaked seeing all that brown sticky stuff. I haven't seen any after seasoning photos. I've been researching for two and a half hours on this forum trying to find out if this is what happens after seasoning. No luck.
So I need input from someone. I'm hoping it's okay...the sticky stuff. Do I clean this up? How?
I just checked the box again and the sticky stuff is drying. Will it soften when reheated? I ask this because if I foil the bottom, sounds pretty messy to me.
Look at that photo (4th photo) of the bottom portion of the smoker with a partial view of the wood box. Looks like a drip mark from the top of the box/vent hole? Should I be concerned about this for future smoking?
By the way, the wood chunks were ashes. Just a little bit of charcoal on the backside.
