And I'd say you're probably right. Thanks for putting that into perspective, I was confusing myself
I'm guessing two 13-pounders would cook about the same time as one. I mean, it makes sense. If I'd put 2 13-pound turkeys in a regular oven, I definitely wouldn't want to cook them as long as I would one 26-pounder.
