Calphalon roasting rack and oven temp

bxgirl | Nov 25, 201006:08 AM

I am planning to try Alton Brown's turkey roasting method with my TJ's brined turkey.
The recipe says to start off at 500 degrees, and then lower the heat to 350 after 1/2 hour.
I just bought a Calphalon roasting rack (I have my own roaster which can withstand high heat) and the Calphalon rack info says it can only withstand temps to 450 degrees.
Do you think I can risk putting the turkey on that roaster and putting the oven temp to 500, or should I just reduce the temp from Alton's recipe to 450 and maybe let it stay at that temp for 45 minutes instead of the 30?
