• Turkeys 12-15 lbs. cook 3-3½ hours
• Turkeys 15-20 lbs. cook 4-4½ hours
• Turkeys 20-25 lbs. cook 4½-5 hours
• Turkeys 25-30 lbs. cook 5-5½ hours

*These are approximate temperatures and times as all ovens vary.
* Stuffed turkeys may require about ½ hour additional roasting time.
*A cooking bag or cover pan may take off an hour.
*When using a pop up timer, place it in the breast meat.
* Turkey is finished when leg easily falls apart from turkey. Fresh cooks faster than a frozen turkey. *A Whole turkey is safe when cooked to a minimum internal temprature of 165 degrees F as measured with a food thermometer. Check the internal temprature in the innermost part of the thigh and wing and thickest part of the breast.
