It turned out pretty good anyway, and all the side dishes were delicious And the dinner rolls were perfect! I'm not into kneading, so making the dough in the bread maker and then baking them in the oven is a great method for me. Hope everyone else had a wonderful Thanksgiving, too

I Alton Browned a 14-pounder and it was done in 3.25 hours.

I deep fried my turkey for the first time I am not impressed. The dark meat was overcooked, though white meat was perfect. I think I'm going back to baking/roasting next year. But the stuffing I made was absolutely perfect.

I did a 15.1 pound turkey in my Rival roaster oven, preheated to 375F. It took all of 3 hours and 20 minutes to get the breast to 180F on an instant read thermometer. The instructions for the roaster said 14 to 16 pound turkey unstuffed, 3 to 4 hours, so I guess they know what they're talking about.

I read it should take 15 minutes per pound, which would be 3 hours and 45 minutes, unless my math is off. Very aggravated right now, as nothing else is ready and I was planning on dinner at 3 p.m.

Thanks for listening.

Was there dressing in the bird? It cooks faster when its tummy is empty. Sorry about this.
