How Long to Cook a Turkey

I absolutely love turkey!  I’m making turkey dinner tomorrow for the family.  I can never remember how long to cook the turkey for.  Right at the Butterball Website, Butterball has a calculator where all you have to do is enter the weight of the turkey and they will let you know how long it will need to be cooked.  I love this feature!

I hope this helps you as much as it helps me out.
