The National Turkey Federation recommends roasting a turkey in a 325 degree F oven until a meat thermometer indicates the internal temperature registers 180 degrees F in the thigh and 165-170 degrees F in the breast. You should get an accurate thermometer to be sure that you roast the turkey just right.
Rub oil or butter on it and cook it unstuffed. don`t cover it until it`s cooked about 2/3 done,We cooked at 325 for about 4 hrs. and got worried that it wouldn`t be done in time so we upped the temp. to 350 . Our oven has a convection fan so we also turned that on at that point. It took a total of 7.5 hrs. and came out perfect. Watch that the juices don`t over flow,we had to remove some,these large turkeys develop more fat and produce more juices. Good luck and enjoy.
