So thanksgiving is coming up and I plan on smoking my first turkey. A few questions though. I always thought that making turkey would take the whole day but I've been reading on this site that it takes approximately 6 hours?(for a 12-15 pound turkey). Is that right? Also, what difference does it make if I stuff the turkey with some stuffing or not? Does that make the turkey taste better or the stuffing or both?
