How many hours do you cook a 23 pound turkey?
I was told that for every pound, you cook the turkey for fifteen minutes... Did that make sense?? :/
For a turkey that weighs 23 pounds it is best to cook for 3.5 to 4 hours if it is unstuffed and 5 to 5.5 hours if the turkey is stuffed.
I always cook my turkey (stuffed) for 20 minutes per pounds. I have a 23.5 pound turkey. I'll cook it for about 7 1/2 to 8 hours.
