Smile Trouble with award booking

I am trying to find business class awards on Turkish flights from either ORD, LAX, SFO or SEA. UA website does not show any non-stops of these pairings when booking with miles, only UA flights. Even when changing to money, none of the non-stops are showing up. Anyone else having these problems? Am I going about it wrong?
Mods, please feel free to place this in an existing thread if that works better.
Thanks for any help

Partner airlines do not necessarily provide UA with inventory on all routes they fly.

If there's no award inventory, they won't show.

Certainly possible. You will find more out of IAH than SFO/LAX. Purchasing with $$$ on UA tickets went away many years ago.
