Hi sdsue--
Glad you decided to join us!
Lump charcoal burns hotter and faster. You can make the fire last longer and cook at a steady, lower temp (e.g.-- 225, perfect for most forms of BBQ) if you use briquettes. To add smoke you can throw in chunks of hardwood such as hickory (my favorite), or other woods such as pecan/oak/mesquite/apple/etc.
One strong recommendation I will make for smoking a turkey is to brine it first-- this greatly helps with keeping it moist.
If you haven't looked at
http://www.virtualweberbullet.com/
yet, I strongly recommend it. That site is excellent for WSM owners, and BBQers in general. You might get some good ideas you can use for cooking turkey.
