Are you cooking the legs and thighs also? Do you have a scale? The best way to do this would be to weigh them at their current state to find the best cook time.

yes, cooking the leg/thighs too. If I weigh it all, how much time per lb.?

275 is too low a temp, imho. I always roast at 325. Approximately 24 pounds at 325 will take about 6 1/2 hours.
