How Long to Cook a Turkey in the Oven

The amount of time it takes to roast a whole turkey can vary widely, from an hour and a half to six hours or more, depending on the size of the bird and the oven temperature. To get a better idea of how long your turkey will take to cook, decide on an oven temperature, then multiply the proper amount of cooking time per pound by the weight of your turkey.

You can determine whether or not your turkey is ready to serve by sticking a meat thermometer into the thickest part of the meat to check its internal temperature. Once you see that the internal temperature is at least 165 degrees, then you can take the turkey out of the oven.
