First I would like to thank all those here for helping me smoke the best chicken ever. Some of you had responded to me while asking for help I have had made many, many wonderful smoked chickens since asking. Next I want to make a great smoked turkey. I think I will brine somewhat the same, however my main question is how long should I smoke for. I have a 12.25 lb turkey and was thing about smoking it for about 1/2 of that time. Also how long do you think the cook time should be? Most of my chickens (about 4 lbs or so) take about 3 hours. Should I cook my turkey (same temp. 225) for 12 hours (I am using a MES 30)? Again thank you for all of your great help!
