25 pound turkey

Wondering how long to cook this turkey for. Every cookbook I look in seems to say something different. Thanks in advance for the help.

  1. Stuffed or unstuffed? It makes a difference.

    Usually, I roast an unstuffed smaller turkey, but in general a turkey should be roasted about 10 to 12 minutes per pound if it is not stuffed, and about 12 to 15 minutes per pound if it is stuffed....at 325*. When you take it out of the oven, let it sit for another 15 minutes before carving.

    1. Fresh or previously frozen?
