I am going to smoke a small turkey on my YS 640 tomorrow. I have read the recipes on The Sauce site, have spatchcocked it and am brining it now. I intend to smoke it at 250 for an hour and then at 425 until internal temp is 165.

Question 1: The turkey is 11.75 lbs. How long will it take to cook using this method?

Question 2: Should I tent the turkey with foil at any point in the process?

Question 3: What flavor pellets should I use for a turkey? I have several different bags to choose from.

Thanks.

How about 325 to 375? Honestly the Yoder is nothing but a wood fired oven. So go with the same temps you would use in an oven.

Or, cook at lower temps like 275 for up to 5 hours with 10-12 lb turkeys.
