Is it ok to slow cook a turkey

Many moons ago when I had no idea what I was doing, I bought a regular smoker off of my friend and tried smoking a turkey. I don't remember what temperature I cooked it at but I know it was low and I cooked the bird for about 12 hours (18 pounder or so). I had injected it with a Garlic/Rosemary marinade.

It came out wonderful but I will say that I never did it again because I could not stand waking up every 2 hours to add charcoal.

Now I am a more experienced smoker and I have a BGE.

When I bought it, I knew that someday I would cook a turkey in it. That time has come. Everywhere I look though, the recipes call for only a few hours of cook time at a 350 degree temp.

Is it not wise to slow cook a turkey in the BGE like I did so long ago in a standard smoker?
