I never cook, but we had a turkey in the freezer and well... I had my entire family over just because. I added the carrots, celery and apple into the cavity and as a base from the other suggestions. Everything else I followed. Unfortunetly, 5 hours was not enough time. I cooked it at 350 for 5 hours, then turned up the heat to 425 for 2 more hours.My bird was 20lbs. I was worried it would dry out with the higher temp, but I had 18 people to feed. It was perfect!! I have now been designated the new turkey maker!! (and everyone always picks on me for my lack of culinary skill) Make sure you have enough time though.
