frozen

I just put my 20 LB turkey in the frig at 6pm tonight but want to start cooking at 8am in the morning. Can I cook it normally knowing it's still probably frozen inside? (I know not to leave it out overnight) Should I give it more cook time or cook longer for lower temp? Also, it's too big for my microwave oven, otherwise I'd consider that. :(

Try thawing in cold water instead: https://www.foodsafety.gov/

It will never thaw, you need to defrost it in cold water.
