Here are the nesco roaster directions for turkey
*To obtain additional browning on poultry, mix 1/4 Cup melted margarine with 1 Tsp. browning sauce; brush evenly over skin before roasting.
*For crisper skin, baste, then remove liquid during roasting. *Roast turkeys at 400°F. for first and last hour; roast at 350°F. for remaining time.
1 (15 to18 Lb.) Whole fresh turkey
1/4 Cup Margarine, melted
2 Tsp. Browning sauce (Kitchen Bouquet)
1 Tbsp. Chopped parsley
2 Tsp. Poultry seasoning
1 Tsp. Paprika
Preheat Roaster Oven to 400°F.
Place turkey on Rack. Combine margarine and browning sauce; brush evenly over turkey.
Sprinkle on seasonings.
Set Rack in preheated Cookwell. Cover; roast turkey 13-18 minutes per pound at 350°F. (or
until internal temperature reaches 180° on meat thermometer).
For additional browning, see Roasting Chart on Page 5.
For stuffed turkey, add 30 minutes to the roasting time.
Turkey may be held at 200°F until ready to serve.
Turkey, prebasted, 10 to 14 pounds, 400/350/400°F 12 to 17 minutes per pound
Turkey, prebasted 14 to 20 400/350/400°F 13 to 18 minutes per pound
Turkey, whole fresh 10 to 14 400/350/400°F 15 to 20 minutes per pound
I use only 165 as my finish temp. You can use soy sauce instead of Kitchen Bouquet for browning liquid, or place in preheated regular oven at 500 for 20 minutes (until browned) then transfer to roaster.
