2. How long will my turkey take and at what temperature?

225-250 degrees      23-27 minutes per pound
275-300 degrees      18-21 minutes per pound 
350-375 degrees      11-13 minutes per pound

Adjust by about 3 minutes per pound if it is cold.

Check the temperature of the turkey halfway, three quarters of the way and then when you think it is done to make sure that you are on the right track. This will help you monitor the turkey and make sure it is not over cooked! Or even better, use an iGrill and get alerts sent right to your phone so that you always know the internal temperature of the turkey.

Make sure that the turkey is fully cooked to 165 degrees on the innermost part of the thigh and the thickest part of the breast before removing it.

This step is important! Let it rest for 20-30% of the total cooking time.  You can loosely cover the turkey with a piece of aluminum foil while it is resting or you can just leave it open.
