Roast loosely covered with foil in a preheated 325°F to 350°F (160°C to 180°C) oven. If you choose to baste your JD Farms turkey, limit the number of times you open and close your oven (once an hour is sufficient). To brown skin further, remove foil approximately 1 hour before done.

Your JD Farms turkey is done when a meat thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the breast reads 160°F .
When the JD Farms turkey is done, remove it from the oven or barbecue. Cover it with foil and let it stand for 15-20 minutes before carving.
