I hate the internet - Thanksgiving Edition
 
Cooking a 22 pound bird tomorrow for only the second time in my life. (long story) Was putting together my schedule for tomorrow to at least try to time everything correctly and made the mistake of looking at multiple websites to try to determine an approximate cooking time for this beast.

The plan is to roast it unstuffed, in the oven, at 325*. Bird is sitting in a brine as we speak.

I've been to 10 different websites, and they all seem to say something different. I'm seeing times ranging from 3.5 hours all the way up to 6.

Help a brother out - roughly how long is this bird going to take?

Don't eat it too early....you'll get worms.



....I got nothin.

I've cooked exactly one. Used one of those oven bags. It turned out fine.

Doesn't yours have one of those little timer things that pops out when it's ready? That's all I judged by. (other than the instructions on the turkey) :shrug:

The wife says to aim to four hours, then use a thermo to check until it gets to 165 degrees. Let rest for 15-20 minutes.

She wants to know what kind of brine are you using?

3-3.5 hours probably...is what 'm finding

the Talking Can 11-21-2012 08:21 PM

don't know if it is sacrilegious...but i've always used a cooking bag and it comes out fine

Does not have a timer. Not sure I'd trust it anyway.

I'm smoking some breasts, but doing the big bird in the oven, primarily because I like my house, and I'd likely burn it down if I tried to deep fry it.

At least.

OnTheWarpath58 11-21-2012 08:24 PM

And yes, I know I should have asked this more than 12 hours in advance.

LMAO

165 temp does seem to be a consensus...

i'd plan for about 15 mins per lb and check w/ thermometer towards the end

JASONSAUTO 11-21-2012 08:25 PM

Where's the sense of adventure?

Be epic to burn the mother****er down with everyone there...
