Smile New here

Hello,
My name is susie I am new to this site..
I am going to cook a turkey this Thanksgiving in a roaster oven for the first time..I am thinking a 20 pound turkey..The roaster oven is a GE roaster oven if that matters..How long do I cook it in the roaster oven? and what temp should it be on?
This is my first time cooking a turkey in 5 years so any help and tips would be nice of cooking a turkey..
Thanks.:)

Hi. Welcome. The turkey is done when the thigh meat reaches 180 degrees. You can find approximate times on the package or on line, but the true way of knowing when it is done is by checking the temperature. Also, don't forget that if you stuff the turkey it will take longer to roast. In the roaster oven be sure not to add any liquid, or you won't have a brown turkey. I also put paprika on my turkey if I use the roaster oven. I actually prefer to use the oven where the turkey gets a beautiful brown.
