How long to cook a 15lb turkey at 350 degrees?

    3 1/2 to 4 hours. It would have been a bit less time without the stuffing. Check to make sure the juices run clear. Just cut or pull the turkey leg away from the thigh before removing it from the oven. If the juices are clear, it is done. Better yet, if you have a meat thermometer, the stuffing should reach an internal temperature of 165 degrees and the turkey should reach 180 degrees when done. Let the turkey rest for at least 20-30 minutes before carving.

    Most sites recommend roasting the turkey at 325 degrees. I’ve always roasted mine and just about all other roasts at 350 with no problem.

    Thank your brother for serving his country. We are grateful to him.

    What it said on the packaging that came with the turkey was probably "20 minutes per pound", but in a roasting bag that timing might be altered. Stick with the 20-per-pound rule, just in case. Your turkey will be ready in three hours.

    How nice. I love Thanksgiving, and you are using one of the recipes I use!! So, here’s how long to cook it.

    Bake the turkey in the preheated oven for 2 1/2 to 3 hours until no longer pink at the bone and the juices run clear. Uncover the turkey, and continue baking until the skin turns golden brown, 30 minutes to 1 hour longer. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the thigh, near the bone should read 180 degrees F (82 degrees C).

    Have fun!

    I would think about 3-4 hours. Be sure to baste every half hour or so and cover lightly with foil after it turns brown. Enjoy!

    Dump the bag, put the turkey on a rack, mire poix on the bottom of the pan, roast for 3 hours at 425. Check thigh temperature. Done at 175 degrees. Don’t over cook the bird or it will be dry.
    Pour off fat out of pan, make stock from giblets, mince, add drippings flour and bring to boil for one minute. Serve with mashed potatoes, homemade cranberry relish, and some vegetables.

    Allow 15 minutes per lb ( 3h 45m)
    Allow to rest for 45 minutes.

    I am not sure about 350 degrees but there’s a list of times here for 400 degrees:
