HOW TO COOK YOUR HOLMEN LOCKER TURKEY:

Make sure to remove the giblets before putting your turkey in the oven.  The giblets can be saved for gravy or stuffing.  Next, rinse the bird inside and out and pat dry with paper towels.
If you are stuffing the bird, stuff it loosely, allowing about ½ to ¾ cup stuffing per pound of turkey.

  • Brush the skin with melted butter or      oil. Tie drumsticks together with string (for stuffed birds only).
  • Insert a meat thermometer into the      thickest part of the thigh. The thermometer should point towards the body,      and should not touch the bone.
  • Place the bird on a rack in a      roasting pan, and into a preheated 350 degree F (175 degrees C) oven.
  • Suggested cooking times:
Weight of Bird Roasting Time (Unstuffed) Roasting Time (Stuffed)
10 to 18 pounds 3 to   3-1/2 hours 3-3/4 to 4-1/2 hours
18 to 22 pounds 3-1/2   to 4 hours 4-1/2 to 5 hours
22 to 24 pounds 4 to   4-1/2 hours 5 to 5-1/2 hours
24 to 29 pounds 4-1/2   to 5 hours 5-1/2 to 6-1/4 hours
  • Bake until the skin is a light golden color, and then cover loosely with a foil tent. During the last 45 minutes of baking, remove the foil tent to brown the skin. Basting is not necessary, but helps promote even browning.
  • The turkey is done when the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees F (75 degrees C) at the thigh.
  • Enjoy!

Have a happy Thanksgiving!
