Roasting 2 10 1/2 pound turkeys

sw33t | Dec 21, 201307:45 PM

Hi all. I'm roasting 2 10 1/2 pound turkeys this year for Christmas dinner. I have butterballs. They are not my favorites but that was all I could find in that pound range. I am also adding 2 legs to each turkey. I will have the turkeys side by side in 2 separate roasting pans. Dressing will be separate. I was not planning on putting anything in the cavities. I know not to pay attention to the pop up timers. What temperature should I set the oven at? Should I use meat thermometers? If so, where and what temperature? Should I cover the breast? I have done Alton Browns method but his recipe is for 14-16 pound turkeys. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
