  • Just up the temp and you should be fine. I'm not sure what timezone you're in or I'd be able to tell you about how high to make it - also what size is the bird and is it stuffed, or not?

  • A turkey usually is cooked at a oven temperature of 350 degrees for at least 15-20 minutes per pound and depending upon whether it's stuffed or not. If you cook it at a temperature less than 350 degress it will take a great deal longer. To ensure that the turkey is cooked through no red juices should come out of it and there should be no red or pink on the inside when you cut into it, otherwise it isn't done yet.

  • I agree with MocahaMom...It will take forever to bake at 185...I always bake mine at 350 but I use a roasting bag as well so it takes a lot less time that way.

  • we decided that we will just have the turkey tomorrow instead and just warm it up. won't be very good but oh well.

  • 185 means that when the internal temp is 185 it's done - not roast it at 185. And roast isn't an oven setting, it's how you're cooking it - in a roaster pain in the oven, on the bake setting.
