    Weber Whole Turkey Size Guide


    Here is a guide to estimating the approximate cooking time for a Weber Christmas Turkey. We recommend that you cook the turkey for 20 minutes per kilo, plus an additional 20 minutes. For example, a 5kg turkey will take roughly 120 minutes to cook through (20 minutes x 5 kg + 20 minutes = 120 minutes). Once the turkey is cooked, allow it to rest for 10 minutes before carving. It is important to remember that these cooking times are intended as a guide only. The actual cooking time can vary depending on ambient temperature, wind and the temperature of the turkey when you start cooking. We always recommend that you use a meat thermometer to confi rm that your turkey is cooked to 74°C (internal meat temperature). We’ve found that the best position for testing internal temperature is in the front of the breast, as shown above.

    Weber Turkey tip

    Turkeys cooked without stuffing are less likely to dry out. This is because the juices in the cavity steam up through the breast while cooking. If you like stuffi ng, cook it in a foil pan beside the turkey.
