Roasting times for whole turkeys

Preheat your oven to 160°C (325°F) and use these cooking times to prepare roast turkey that's moist, tender and delicious 16 to 20 lb Un Stuffed Turkey 3 ½ - 4 hrs 16 to 20 lb Stuffed Turkey 4 - 4 ½ hrs Turkey is fully cooked and safe to eat when the meat thermometer reads 77°C or 170°F for an un-stuffed turkey and 82°C or 180°F for a stuffed turkey.
