Turkey confusion, needing conclusion.

ForkSpoonandKnife | Nov 19, 2007 05:28 PM

Bah!!! My Turkey Is HUGE!!

I've been all amped up about making the Maple-Glazed Turkey from epicurious until I found out that the turkey we are receiving as a gift from my hubby's employer is 24 lbs instead of the 12-14 lb turkey we were expecting. This is only my second time cooking a whole turkey and I'm lost as to how I double the recipe...? How do I know how much longer it will need to cook? Should the maple glaze go on later? Should the oven temp. be lower?

If there are any experienced-turkey-roasters out there that could shed some light on this for me? Our stomachs will thank you profusely.
