I calculated that we would need about 3 hours and 20 minutes after the initial 20 minutes at 475. We cooked it at 475 for 20 minutes then leaving the bird in the oven the temp was turned down to 250 degrees. Three hours and 20 minutes later the bird is just warm (not hot) and white. It is no where close to being done. I doubled checked my calculations against your "chart" and it seems my timing is correct.
Not sure what happened but I am thankful that I don't have a houseful of people waiting on dinner. Do you have any suggestions on what might have gone wrong? I have another turkey to cook tomorrow which I will be cooking at 350 as usual. I just liked the sound of a nice, moist bird.
Thanks. No name provided.
Comment: Lose the aluminum foil. It seems like lot of problems crop up when people use aluminum foil. Other times, it doesn't seem to matter.
