Well without going into great detail, there's a difference between grilling and smoking. When smoking, temps run only 225* or so. This is slow cooking like a crockpot. Now if you are willing to jack up the temp to 300-350, then sure you can cook a bird quick. But I have an old iron pit that I can't even pick up one end of. It takes hours to heat up and hours to cool down. I DIDN'T use one of those brinkman smokers. I count on on 30 to 35 minutes per pound. My turkey was large and I smoked it about 6-7 hours.. Whose counting? I've heard that the expensive "green egg" smokers are the best but I never seen one in action.
