Christmas Turkey Cooking Times

Guideline for Turkey is 15mins per every 1lb the Bird weighs, according to our Cookery Book.

Though as the stupid twonks in Brussels in charge of the EU insists on everything being labelled in Metric, we now have to also calculate how many pounds the Turkey (labelled in KG’s) weighs, so the darn thing cooks properly.

1kg = 2.2lb’s, so…………. a 5kg Turkey = 11lb’s
a 5.5kg Turkey = 12.1lb

So, you have to roast a 12lb / 5.5kg Turkey at “Moderate-Hot” for 180mins + another 15 = 3hours 15minutes

An 11lb Turkey = 165mins + 15mins = 3hours exactly.

Turkey’s over 12lb’s require a slightly different formula.

Also, add another 15 – 20mins if covering the bird with Tin foil or using a covered Roasting Tin for it.
