Your better off with a small turkey about 12 lbs. or less if your going to cook it whole.

If you need more meat than that just get 2 of them.

I don't believe your smoker is big enough to spatchcock the turkey or you could smoke a bigger one.

If your not to concerned with having a whole turkey to put on the table, you could part it out.

I just did a 21# turkey in a little over 3 hours.


As for smoke time, I would let the smoke roll the whole time.

Good luck!
