    350 degrees is too high. 300 degrees for two and half hours is the best.

    Best rule of thumb when cooking poultry, 20 minutes per pound at 350 degrees in a preheated oven. That would be 4 hours.

    Roasting Turkey
    Preheat oven to 175C (350F)
    10-18lb Turkey. Roasting (unstuffed) 3 to 3-1/2 hours. Roasting (stuffed) 3-3/4 to 4-1/2 hours.
    18 to 22lb Turkey. Roasting (unstuffed) 3-1/2 to 4 hours. Roasting (stuffed) 4-1/2 to 5 hours.
    22 to 24lb Turkey. Roasting (unstuffed) 4 to 4-1/2 hours. Roasting (stuffed) 5 to 5-1/2 hours.
    24 to 29lb Turkey. Roasting (unstuffed) 4-1/2 to 5 hours. Roasting (stuffed) 5-1/2 to 6-1/4 hours.
    Bake until the skin is a light golden colour, and then cover loosely with a foil tent. During the last 45 minutes of baking, remove the foil tent to brown the skin. Basting is not necessary, but will promote even browning.
    The only true test for doneness is the temperature of the meat, not the colour of the skin.
    The turkey is done when the thigh meat reaches an internal temperature of 180 degrees F. To get an accurate reading, be sure that your thermometer is not touching the bone.
    If your turkey has been stuffed, it is important to check the temperature of the dressing; it should be 165 degrees F (75 degrees C).
    When the turkey is done, remove from the oven and allow to stand for 20-30 minutes before carving. This allows the juices to redistribute throughout the meat, and makes for easier carving.
