Turkey Final Temp? And How long to rest the bird?

Mellicita | Nov 24, 2008 04:01 PM

To what temperature do you cook your turkey? I have seen recommendations from 140 to 170 in the breast. I've had trouble with getting a non-dry breast, even in the brined birds.

And How long do you allow the bird to rest? Is there a certain number of minutes per lb? Or until the bird cools to a certain temperature?
