How long to smoke a Turkey on the Big Green Egg

jbford | Dec 11, 2011 12:20 PM

We are going to smoke a 25 pound turkey on the Big Green Egg for Christmas. My wife's folks are coming down from Indiana to our house in Florida for the first time and I'd better not screw up. I've seen a lot of conflicting information about how long to smoke a turkey and at what temperature to cook it at. In the video on the BGE web site Kevin Rathbun says 350 degrees and 12 min per pound which for a 25 lb turkey would be 5 hours. I've seen other information that says you should smoke it at 250 degrees and 20 to 30 minutes per pound which means i'll be up all night. Can someone please help me?
