Pellet smoking a 12lb turkey: low and slow or 325?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
So I'm conflicted for tomorrow. My current plan is to get up at 6, get the bird on the smoker by 7 @ 200 for an hour, raise it to 250 for an hour, then finish at 325 to crisp up the skin. Reason being is mostly that my green mountain pellet grill doesn't smoke the greatest over 300 degrees.

Thoughts? Suggestions? Bird needs to be ready to eat by 12-1

You are in for a frustrating day if you try and do low and slow.  It can be done, but low n slow is almost never done on time.

How long should I have the bird on at 325?

How long would u suggest going at 325? I'm assuming about 3 hours for the IT to hit 165?

3 hours is about right.  Might be done a little sooner or later, but not by much.
