You can do the poke test by poking the thigh with a fork or knife.

If they start to pull away from the body, that means that it’s cooked through.

Butterball(r) Oven-Baked Turkeys prepared in an U.S.D.A. approved facility to the safe internal temperature 165°F. We recommend heating the room to an internal temperature at least 140 ° before serving.

Here are some tips to help you heat your fully cooked turkey:

  • Preheat your oven to 325°F.
  • Remove the turkey from its package, and if necessary, remove the pop-up timer.
  • We recommend thawing your frozen turkey in the refrigerator for 24 hours for every five pounds of bird. So, if you have a 20-pound turkey, it should spend four days in the fridge.
  • To cook, place the turkey breast side up on a flat wire rack in a roasting pan two inches deep. (If you don’t have a wire rack, you can improvise by using upside down aluminum foil balls or an oven-safe cooling rack.)
  • If you’re reheating a frozen turkey, you’ll need to cook it for 50 percent longer than you would if it were thawed.
  • So, if your 20-pound turkey needs six hours to cook, you’ll need to cook it for nine hours total.
  • Cover the turkey loosely with foil or a lid during cooking so the skin doesn’t dry out.
  • About 30 minutes before you think the turkey will be done, remove the foil or lid and continue cooking until the skin is golden brown.
  • Use a meat thermometer to check that the thickest part of the breast and inner thigh have reached 165°F.
