There is a mistake on the Adafruit page,  they say

You can use any power NPN or N-Channel MOSFET,
but you must use one that has" logic level" gate voltage ( will switch on with 5v from the Arduino )

If you use a normal MOSFET, it may not turn fully on with 5 volts on its gate, and will act as a resistor and get hot.
With my mobile phone I can call people and talk to them -  how smart can you get ?
