Turkey roasting time for today's Thanksgiving dinner?

casey30 | Oct 9, 201105:27 AM

Hi

I usually cook my stuffed 20 - 22 lb turkey at 325 for about 5 1/2 hours. I buy a fresh one and it always comes out beautifully.

This year's 19 pounder is going to be unstuffed, and I don't know what to do about the timing. I've read anywhere from 5 - 10 minutes less per pound, which would take about 1 1/2 hours off.

Does 4 hours for a 19 pound turkey sound reasonable?

Also, I've been advised to cut a couple of onions and some celery and put that in the cavity.

Any ideas on this would be helpful.

Happy Thanksgiving!
