A few years back we did our back-yard birds, one was 50lbs dressed!!! I think we did about 9 hours at 325.
Because we always (now) inject them with Italian dressing to the point the skin pops up with all the fluid inside, they remain moist even after that long in the heat.

Somehow an extra bird showed up on my doorstep this year, 13lbs IIRC. Black Friday I bought a new electric smoker, set it to 240, and left that in there with a mix of apple/pecan chips, and the bowl full of Cabernet. The breast strips immediately under the skin were a little stringy for about 2mm, but then it was tender and juicy all thru. The only other thing I did after washing it was to put some sage in the 2 cavities.
