    Good Eats Roast Turkey

    Hi all!

    I have a quick question. I am making the Good Eats turkey, but I have always made a 14 pounder, this year the smallest bird I could find was 18, anyone ever make an 18 pound bird using Altons cooking method and time? Should I just tack on an extra half hour to the cooking time? I will be using a thermometer, but I want to make sure I can still use this method on a larger bird.

    Thanks!!

    Well, the actual recipe calls for a 14-16 pound turkey and a roasting time of 2-2 1/2 hours so I'd say another half hour sounds about right and shouldn't be a problem with the larger bird.

    Great! I plan to use a probe thermometer, but I was hoping someone here had success using a larger bird and could reassure me. I am a worry wort.

    Thanks Sneezles!
