I'm having thanksgiving today... don't ask. I have a 19 pound turkey, which I am cooking without stuffing. How long will it need to cook @ 325 degrees? And, what is the temperature that the thermometer should read when I remove it? I have read to take it out @ 161 degrees and that it will go up to the safe temp of 165 while resting. Is this correct?
I plan to raise temp towards end to 400 to brown it, and I'll remove the foil covering at that time.
You deserve a cookie.
