For years I have smoked a 25 - 28 lb; typically for 15 - 17 hours; and its wrapped in 5 lbs of bacon. At the same time usually grill a 14-16 lb bird. no one has died or gotten sick. However, an inlaw new to grilling has everyone worried terrible things will happen if they take part in this years turkey. I have no intent on changing my tradition but am curious as to the logic behind this argument. Can someone please help?
