Timing the Turkey

15-20 minutes per pound, at about 350 Fahrenheit.

I've gone and done it again, and misplaced the instructions for roasting my turkey.

I got one about 8 kilos, which I make to be 18 pounds, mas o menos. I need to know temperature (preferably in centigrade) and time. American style, I remember it being something about so many minutes per pound, plus something. Also assume best thing to do is wrap it in foil and baste it occasionally.

Thanks in advance for your help.
And Merry Christmas

"Joy of Cooking" says 325 F, which would be 90 C. They say roast until the thickest part of the thigh registers 175 to 180 F (79.4-82.2 C), 10 to 12 minutes per pound if the bird isn't stuffed, 12 to 15 minutes per pound if it is. Stuffing temp should reach at least 160 F (71.1 C) to be safe to eat.

Or here's a Betty Crocker link to a roast turkey recipe:

The temperature conversion from F to C is simple, if you have a calculator. Subtract 32 from the Fahrenheit temperature, then multiply by 5 and divide by 9. -----------

I hope Albion hasn't started roasting that turkey at 90 C. 325 F would be 163 C. 325 F is well above boiling; and boiling is 100 C.

Thanks for the correction, Ken. My fingers must have slipped on the calculator. Or something..

Judy's answer to your Christmas 2000 inquiry is at:
350 F + = 177 c approx

From: Albion
Merry Christmas to all, and a special thanks to everyone who chipped in with help on roasting the bird. It turned out beautifully, with only have getting eaten, so now to the sandwiches.
