15 people?  I have been tasked with cooking this years Thanksgiving turkey.  Never having cooked a turkey, I have no idea how big of one I need to feed 15 people.  I was actually considering two smaller turkeys vs. one large.  Is there an average cooking time for turkey?  How big a turkey(or turkeys) can I cook on my large BGE at one time?  With so many people my wife will not let me go exotic with spices or rubs.  Just a plain old lightly spiced turkey on the grill.  I am going to sneak some apple wood in there though.  I plan a test run on a smaller turkey in the near future.  Thanks for the advice.
