Turkey Cook Time Question
I am smoking my first turkey tomorrow. I've read a bunch of posts here on the subject. It is a 12 1/2 pound bird. I am going to cook it in my 22 1/2" WSM at 325-350F. My understanding is it will take about 3 hours to cook.
Is this correct?
Thanks in advance.

I did one a couple of weeks ago, same weight and at 325 degrees. I finished at right under three hours

3-4 hrs I like to rest mine tented for 40 min before disassembley.

Sounds about right for timing and agree with Bludaw about giving it a good rest. The big thing I have found with most whole turkeys as far as time goes is how thawed they are.

Pretty Close at those temps. 165-170*F in deep breast.

OK it's on. My WSM is sitting around 350F grate temp. Wish me luck!
