Do not thaw at room temperature. †Always thaw in unopened wrapper, thaw on tray in refrigerator, or thaw in cold water, changing water every 30 minutes. ††Use a shallow open pan with a flat rack in a 325°F. Thaw: Refrigerator: Allow at least 24 hours for every 4 pounds. Place unopened turkey, breast side up, on a tray in refrigerator following above guidelines, or until thawed. Quick thaw - Cold water: Allow 30 minutes per pound. Place unopened turkey, breast down, in sink filled with cold tap water. Change water every 30 minutes. Once thawed, keep in refrigerator until ready to cook. Prepare: 1) Remove packaging: Remove turkey from wrapper. Take out the neck and giblets from the two body cavities. Drain juices and pat turkey with paper towels. 2) Stuff turkey - If desired: Stuff turkey just before roasting. Lightly fill neck cavity; turn wings back to hold neck skin in place. Stuff body cavity and lightly return legs to tucked position. No trussing is necessary. Roast: 1) Preheat oven to 325°F. 2) Place turkey, breast side up, on flat roasting rack in 2" deep open roasting pan. Brush or spray skin with vegetable oil. 3) Roast according to time guidelines above*. 4) To prevent overcooking, loosely cover breast with lightweight foil when about two-thirds done. 5) To check for doneness, temperature on a meat thermometer should be 170°F breast/180°F thigh. If the turkey is stuffed, move thermometer to center of stuffing; temperature should be 165°F.** Double check temperature for food safety. 6) Let turkey stand 15 minutes before carving. **Note: When the thigh muscle is pierced deeply with a fork, juices should be clear and no longer reddish pink. *If turkey is covered or placed in an oven cooking bag, cook time will vary. Meat thermometer directions: Thermometer tip should be placed in thigh (not drumstick), not touching bone. Position tip to be pointing towards (not in) body cavity. 170°F in breast, 180°F in thigh, 165°F in stuffing. Re-insert thermometer to double check temperature for food safety (for oven-safe thermometer). Carving directions: 1) Remove drumstick: Cut entire leg off by holding drumstick and cutting through skin all the way to the joint. Remove by pulling out and back using point of knife to disjoint it. Separate thigh and drumstick at joint. 2) Horizontal cut: Insert fork in upper wing to steady turkey. Make a long horizontal cut above wing joint through to body frame. 3) Slicing: Beginning halfway up breast, cut thin slice. When knife reaches horizontal cut, slice will fall free. Continue slicing, starting cut at a higher point each time. Storage of leftovers: Refrigerate leftovers within 2 hours after heating. Carve turkey into pieces to speed cooling. Use leftover turkey within 3 days.
