It's a long story, but I have a perfectly valid excuse for making it to the tender age of 31 without ever having had to roast a turkey.

That being said, there's no way out this year so HEEEELLLLLP! :lol:

(FWIW, I make an EXCELLENT roast chicken, but that's like 2lbs, haha, not 14!)

I have a 14lb Butterball turkey and I bought one of those roasting pans with the lids on them. I have a digital meat thermometer, and the Butterball website videos say to make sure the thigh is at 180 and the breast is at 170. For a 14lb turkey, the site says it will take approx. 4-4 1/2 hours to cook and to tent the turkey with foil after 2 1/2 hours to keep the breast from drying out.

Is this all correct? Do you season it in anyway? Do you rub crisco on it? Do you have to baste it? Butterball says you don't have to baste their turkeys, just rub oil on them before you cook them?

And stuffing....when I roast a chicken I usually stuff it with Mandarin orange quarters, fresh garlic, and onion...can I do this with the turkey as well?

There are many delicious ways to cook a Turkey. What, exactly, are you looking for with your results? Fried, smoked, traditional? Any allergies?

Traditional roast turkey, no allergies.

By the way, I tried cooking the roast beef your way....it came out rather nicely, thank you.

Butterball is full of s***. A 14 pound turkey needs to rest after roasting for about 40 minutes and will climb and additional 20 degrees (or more) during that time. And 180 is overcooked, USDA lists 165 as the safe temp for turkey. I'd pull it at 150 in the thick part of the thigh.

Go ahead and stuff it with whatever you'd like, just keep it kinda loose.
