How Long To Cook Your Turkey?

The most asked question we get from Traeger fans is "how long should I cook it?" We put together a little guide to help you plan the cooking time of your turkey. Make sure to give yourself an hour incase your bird is not cooking as fast of the guide says, and also for the all important resting time.
