Weight Roasting Time (Stuffed) Roasting Time (Unstuffed)
10-18 pounds 3-3/4 to 4-1/2 hours 3 to 3-1/2 hours
18-22 pounds 4-1/2 to 5 hours 3-1/2 to 4 hours
22-24 pounds 5 to 5-1/2 hours 4 to 4-1/2 hours
24-29 pounds 5-1/2 to 6-1/4 hours 4-1/2 to 5 hours
All the times listed above are based on a 350 F° oven.
The thigh temperature should be 180 F° to 185 F°, while the breast should be 165 F° to 170 F°.
If you are stuffing your turkey or making the stuffing in a casserole dish, it should be 165 F°.
Always use a meat thermometer when checking your turkey!
When the turkey is 2/3 of the way done, I like to cover the top with a little piece of foil.
Keep basting, keep basting, keep basting! Never enough basting!
Hope all of you have an enjoyable and fantastic Thanksgiving!
