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?
At 325* I'd think 6 hours would dry the shit out of it.
3-3.5 sounds about right. You bagging it or just sticking it in a pan in the oven?
