Another turkey question

When cooking 2 turkey breast at the same time on my BGE......
would two 10lb breast require the same cooking time as one 20 lb whole
turkey? Or would the needed cooking time be for the individual weight?[p]And........where can I buy a remote meat themometer so that I wouldn't have to open the lid to check internal meat temp?[p]

    The time should be more like individual weight...maybe a tad longer due to the added mass.[p]You can pick up polder type thermometers (with a cable ptemp probe) at most kitchen/bath stores, radio shack, and many places online.[p]Happy Thanksgiving

    Sounds like you and I will be doing 2 turkey breasts today. I'll post a picture when I get mine going later today - by 3-4pm. I am doing 2 7 lb'ers and like Nature said, they cook like you have just one in there. I will be using a pizza pan as a drip pan under a V rack which will have both birds resting on their backs. I will rotate them twice during the approx 3 hrs at 350 deg. I think they will have the pop out temp gizmo's but I will also have a Polder probe in one to be sure. I pull them at 160 deg. [p]Oh, be sure to wrap the Polder cable that is in the Egg at 350 deg so it helps to protect it from that heat.[p]Rub a little olive oil on the skin so it browns nicely. I don't use any wood and it has a very lite touch of smoke flavor when done. A little wood goes a long way with foul.[p]Tim -- pictures later
