How long to smoke a Turkey on the Big Green Egg

So what would be the advantage of smoking two small ones vs. one large one?

How long to smoke a Turkey on the Big Green Egg

Hi bbqJohn, I have ordered but could probably change. Would it take less time to cook two smaller birds versus one big one.? And where would I get an estimate of how long it would take to cook two? All the cooking times I've seen are based on cooking one at a time. I know I have to cook it until it gets to the proper temp but I need to know approximately how long it will take to cook so it doesn't get done too soon relative to when my wife will have everything else done.

How long to smoke a Turkey on the Big Green Egg

We are going to smoke a 25 pound turkey on the Big Green Egg for Christmas. My wife's folks are coming down from Indiana to our house in Florida for the first time and I'd better not screw up. I've seen a lot of conflicting information about how long to smoke a turkey and at what temperature to cook it at. In the video on the BGE web site Kevin Rathbun says 350 degrees and 12 min per pound which for a 25 lb turkey would be 5 hours. I've seen other information that says you should smoke it at 250 degrees and 20 to 30 minutes per pound which means i'll be up all night. Can someone please help me?
