How long should a cook a eighteen pound turkey?
For one 14 to 18-pound turkey, roast in 325-degree oven for 3 and three quarters to 4 and one quarter hours. Check internal temperature for 165 degrees Fahrenheit. Let the turkey set for 20 minutes before serving.
Turkeys vary, and so do home ovens. But generally, you will want to cook an unstuffed turkey for about 15 minutes per pound, at 325 degrees. For an 18-pounder, about four and a half hours would do the trick. Roasting a stuffed bird will lengthen the cooking time.
