Cooking a 10lb turkey

This will be the first time I have used the BGEgg. Everyone says turkeys work out really well and here is Thanksgiving.
I plan to brine it for 24 hrs.

The recipes all mention the internal temperatures to achieve but don't give any clues to how long it might take.
If I cook at say 250 degrees approximately how long will it take for the turkey to cook?

    Kick that temp up to 325. You will be looking at 12-15 minutes per pound. lean toward the low end if it's not stuffed and the high end if it is.

    Cooking a turkey at 250 degrees gives it a texture most people are not used to for Thanksgiving. Save the low and slow for turkey drumsticks.

    As SoonerChris said if this is your first attempt at a Egged Turkey use Mad Max's technique.
