I've read thru the various Turkey threads, and I've settled on cooking my bird by kick starting it at 450 for 30 mins, then down to 350 until thigh is ~155. Last year was my first bird and i roasted at high heat - I liked the bird, but there were basically no drippings due to the heat. So i'm gonna try this method.
My question: appx how long does this method take? (e.g. 15min/lb, 20?). I need to figure out when to have my bird in the oven (I want to take it out an hour before eating...).
