"Super easy recipe and super moist turkey. I roasted a 20 lb. turkey using this recipe. It turned out moist and delicious but my 20 lb. turkey only took 2 1/4 hours to cook and I only had the oven on 325 degrees. The meat was nice and moist, and the skin was nicely browned, which I was a little surprised because I didn't expect it to be since it was cooked in a bag. I am just glad I checked the temperature of the turkey when I did. Otherwise I am afraid the turkey would have gotten pretty dry. So check the temperature of your turkey way before the suggested cooking time."
