What do your thanksgiving menus typically look like? I do a turkey and a ham, sweet potato casserole(think Ruths Chris) stuffing, corn maque choux and dirty rice. Sometimes Shrimp mirlton.
For dessert we do pecan pie and apple pie.

what about y’all? Pretty traditional or different?

My wife has been doing a buttermilk soak for just about any poultry we do (I think she got it from the salt, fat chick)
Anyway we did that with the turkey (plus salt and spices)
Cavity filled with leeks and clementines
That was a **** good bird
Also the sweet potato pie was dang good

off to have a quiet mci

I agree with the masses here. I wouldn't keep smoke on that bird for more than a couple of hours. If you smoke it for 18 hrs, it will likely just taste like ash. Smoke it for a couple of hours and then finish it in the oven or some "non smokey" heat source.
I've never done a 25# bird, but done lots of normal sized ones on the egg and never went anywhere near 18 hours. I think the last 15# was about 3.5 hours somewhere around 300.

I don't think there's any reason to cook it low like a brisket and would prefer not to have my bird come out looking like a chimney sweep at 5pm.

I'm bumping this because I know there's a recipe in here I want. I think.

Probably cooked mine a bit too long. But it had already split open at the top, presumably where they inserted the other 2 birds. Gonna rest a few more minutes and start carving it up.

I'm sure that was good but, man, it looks like a meat pile up!
