  • What was the temp on the oven, is it stuffed and did you cover it? All those things make a difference.

  • it could be done. I think it goes faster in the bag. Do you have a regular meat thermometer that you can check the temperature of it?

  • Mine is about 10 lbs. The instructions say just to place in a roaster and cook for about 2 hrs at 350.
