30 Pound Turkey ... Cook turkey parts (white and dark meat) separately?

ipsedixit | Nov 17, 2009 02:12 PM

I just got handed a 30 pound turkey to cook.

Given the size, I'm thinking about cutting up this dinosaur, ahem, I mean bird and roasting the breast and thigh/leg parts separately.

Anyone have experience with a bird of this size? Is it too big to roast whole? I fear if I put the thing in the oven parts of it will overcook and dry out.
