We are having the whole family out for thanksgiving this year and will need a large turkey to feed them all. I am looking anywhere from a 20 to 24 lb. turkey. My question is if I cut the turkey in half do I then change my smoking to based on the weight of the to separate pieces (I.e. if I have a 20lb. turkey and cut it in half and now have (2) 10lb pieces do I base my cooking time on the 10lbs?) I know it all comes down to temp at the end just curious with the amount of meat in the smoker will affect smoking time. TIA.
