Good Eats Turkey...Anybody try it with a bigger bird?

Christina D | Nov 12, 2012 05:11 AM

We're going to try the Good Eats method this year sans brining (500 degrees for 30 minutes, 350 thereafter, no basting, no stuffing). The recipe calls for a 14-16 pound bird, which we've used in the past with great success. We're getting a bird in the 22-24 pound range this year (too many guests for a smaller turkey, too few for 2 turkeys) and I was wondering if anyone has had experience with a big GE turkey.

Thanks!
