  • . Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. The first one I did was dry so this time need to baste every half hour actually husband did that one.

  • If you do not have that thermometer that tells you the internal temperature go by the weight.  Husband putting turkey in now 11:42am 20lbs  You still have time to get the thermometer.  Mind will be done by 7pm, oh well.  I have tips on my profile.

  • Help707 ~ We have already had our meal so this isn't an emergency, but I wondered if you could tell me the best place to place the darn meat thermometer. I know I'm not supposed to touch bone with it, but I had 3 meat thermometers sticking in different places in my turkey at the same time when it was supposed to be finished cooking and I wasn't sure which one I was supposed to go Fortunately, the turkey was cooked thoroughly, was full of flavor, tender, and very juicy....perfect! But sticking those meat thermometers to get that 180 degree reading is still baffling to me.
