Wife wants to eat between 4-5pm so I'm thinking 23lb bird cooked at 325-350 2-2/12 hrs maybe? Also I'll have a pan of gravy on the lower rack of the WSM so I was thinking about firing her up around noon getting bird on 2pm.
Any thoughts?
You might want to give yourself more time. I did a chicken in 1 1/2 hours at 300. Seems like that big of a turkey would take longer than 2 1/2 hours. Maybe some one who has done that big of a bird can provide a better answer
