I'd say the ideal size for just about any kind of cooking is about 12 lbs.
No particular reason why I guess, other than that size bird will fit in a brine bucket easily, will fit on the Turkey Cannon, etc.
I'm going to do a 20 lb'er this year. I just won't be able to use the Cannon.
No matter, I'll just stuff it with aromatics, truss it and smoke it.
If it'll fit on your smoker, it'll smoke.
