2 turkey smoke times?

  1. I have smoked a turkey for the last few years. I got my brine down and my wood ready but due to my wife's family and mine wanting me to do one I am going to have to do 2 at the same time. I have a home built 55 gallon drum smoker with a fire box. For 2 birds do I have to double my time? Am I looking at 12 hours for 2 12lb birds or does it still stay at the 6-7 hour mark?

    One 12LB turkey or two the cook time is the same. It may take a bit longer for the Smoker temp to recover from having twice the mass of cold meat...JJ
  3. Awesome, thank you! Well it looks like I got some stuff to buy and prepare.
