Hope you weren't going to do the turkey yesterday, There is a lot of info on the net about these CAS (cheap azz smokers).
I own 3 of the Brinkman CAS and for the cost of them, I can't go wrong, someday I want to upgrade but till then these do the job.
Takes a little time to get used to them. I ALWAYS use cowboy charcoal, I like chunks of wood soaked overnight for my smoke, and you will need lots of time and beer. I am not sure if they work without the beer, if you don't drink, you may not be able to use it and may have to ship it to me.
I did a 21 pound turkey on one yesterday and a 12 pound pork butt on the other. The biggest turkey I have done is a 25lber. Had to stuff that under the lid and it took about 16 hours. Nice thing about the water smokers is that you really can't overcook anything. Once you get the hang of it you'll love it.
1. Fill charcoal pan and get fire going
2. Fill water pan with water,wine,bourbon,beer (pick 2)
3.Toss on your choice of Meat (tofu not allowed) seasoned, rubbed, massaged the way you want it.
4. Cover and wait.
5. Add soaked wood chunks as needed and keep water pan full.
6. Enjoy in about 8-15 beers (hours).
Most of your smoke flavor is going to happen in the first couple of hours of cooking. so keep it smokin hard early.
