It’s going to be Thanksgiving soon and you might be wondering how long should you cook a turkey. Well, the turkey cooking time is not the same for all turkeys, as we will teach you below.
We hope that you and your family will have a delicious Thanksgiving turkey. We’ll try to share with you some turkey recipes and other turkey cooking guide soon.
How Long To Cook A Turkey
- Measure the weight (W) of your turkey in pounds.
- Multiply the weight of your turkey in pounds by 15 to determine the total number of minutes to cook your turkey.
Example, your turkey is 15 lbs, then the turkey cooking time is 225 minutes. (sorry for the previous miscalculation)
- The cooking time above is for an unstuffed, thawed turkey in a 325 degree F oven. You should add 15 minutes cooking time if your turkey is stuffed.
- Insert a cooking thermometer into the thickest part of the thigh to ensure your turkey is cooked to 180 degrees F before taking it out of the oven. If your turkey is stuffed, the temperature of the stuffing should be at least 165 degrees F.
