A question about a recipe: Russ Parsons' Dry-Brined Turkey (a.k.a. The Judy Bird)

I have a question about the recipe "Russ Parsons' Dry-Brined Turkey (a.k.a. The Judy Bird)" from Genius Recipes. Do a 12-pound turkey and a 16-pound turkey really cook for about the same time? If not, how do I figure out time for a 13-pound bird? Thanks!

For a standard bird, we recommend roasting at 425 for the first 30 minutes, and then reducing the heat to 325 degrees. Pull your turkey when its internal temperature reaches 160 degrees -- it will rise to 165 while it rests. Temp is more important than time, but plan for approximately 13 minutes per pound.

"Thermometer (instant or regular) to check temp of your turkey: priceless"
