At about 275, I would count on six hours at least. We are talking about smoking it right?

Cut the back out of the turkey and flatten out. I have found it to be a great way to get a more evenly cooked juice turkey. Plus it cooks alittle quicker. Dont for get to brine it.

Here a pic of one

Just like with chickens, it helps to speed up the cook and enable more even cooking. Give it a shot.

I'll have to try splitting one this year. However, last year I tried Poo's recipe, and they were amazing!
