"Thermometer (instant or regular) to check temp of your turkey: priceless"
Lindsay-Jean H. November 24, 2013
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.
