How Long to Cook Turkey by Weight

The general rule for cooking a whole turkey in the oven is that you should allow for around 15 to 20 minutes of cook time per pound. This assumes that you're roasting the turkey at 325 degrees; if you set your oven temperature higher, you can shave off a few minutes per pound.
