Hey everyone, checked through a few other threads and had some questions. Watched traeger’s video on YouTube to cook the turkey and will follow their recipe however:

• how long would you cook a 20lb turkey for? They are saying 3-4 hrs at 300f for about 12lbs , thinking about 5-6 hours?
• planning on bringing for about 24 hours - is that long enough?

Any input is greatly appreciated.
Cheers,

I personally wouldn't go anything over 48 hours. You might get it over salty if longer then that. But that's just my opinion.
