    My wife decided to be nice and buy the Christmas turkey last night, saving me a trip today. I was planning to buy a 12 lb turkey to smoke. Having never smoked a turkey, I'm reading everythng I can find on doing it right. The problem is the nice lady bought a 16.75 lb bird. What I have read is do not go over 14 lbs to keep things safe to eat. Anyone have experience with smoking a big bird or should I get another one for Christmas dinner and figure out something to do with the big one i have now?

    Thanks,
    Ken
