How long does it take to cook a 14 lb turkey at 200 degrees?
Asked by anonymous on Nov 26, 2008 in Nutrition



If I put my 14 lb turkey in at 200 degrees, how long will it be before it's done?


Answer

Some people say to cook a turkey overnight at 200 degrees Fahrenheit, but the USDA does not recommend cooking a turkey at temperatures less than 325 degrees.   Long slow cooking at low temperatures encourages the growth of bacteria, especially when the turkey is stuffed. Always use a food thermometer to check the internal temperature of turkey and stuffing.  Both are safely cooked when the temperature is at least 165 °F.  At 325 degrees, it takes about 3.75 hours to cook an unstuffed 14 pound turkey.  Read about how not to cook a turkey from the Guide to Busy Cooks at About.com.
