Hi everyone, I found an awesome deal on a turkey yesterday, and I would like to smoke it next weekend. One problem though, it is a 17 pound bird. This makes me concerned about danger zone issues. My idea was to cut the turkey in half, and smoke both halves at the same time. Do any of you see why this wouldn't work? By the way, I'll be using my old electric ECB water smoker that I have modified to burn charcoal in, thinking of using hickory for smoke, Adrian.
