What kind of pit? At 300 - 325, the bird should be done before 4 hours.

First of all I would pull the bird at 157 degrees, then after a brief rest on the counter the IT will get to 165. It will be much more juicy that way. At that temp I would say about 2 + hours.

Ok thanks for the reply. It’s been on 90 min now at 350 IT is 140 so like u say it’ll prob be done by the 2+hr Mark.
