Anyone ever smoke a large turkey? I've used my pellet smoker for a 15lb'er

In the past, no problem but....
My aunt said she had a turkey that she wants me to smoke for Sunday. I of course said, "no problem".
She's thawing it out and I found out it's a 24lb turkey. That's friggin huge.
From everything I read, you should never smoke a turkey larger than 15 lbs because it spends waaaay to much time in the "danger zone". So 24 pounds is waaaay too big. Right?
