    How big is the bird??? My guess is it's not going to take nearly that long! Cook to internal temp, not time! Pull at 163* breast, and allow to rest 30 minites, then carve.

    Turkeys cook much faster on the egg then in an oven since it cooks like a convection oven. A 12 lb bird takes around 2 hours and a 17 lb bird around 3 hours. Your target temp for the breast is 160 and the thigh is 180...good luck.
