HOW TO COOK TURKEY
Depending on how many pounds your turkey is, here's how I do it without stuffing:
12 pounds turkey
Salt and pepper
*Preheat oven to 500 degrees F.
Rub your turkey generously with salt and pepper inside and out. Put the turkey on a baking pan. Cover breast and wings of turkey with aluminum foil.
Bake your turkey for 30 minutes and then lower the heat to 350 degrees F and cook each pound for 12 minutes until thermometer inserted in the thickest part of the thigh reads 160* Fahrenheit.
Bring out of the oven and let cool for 30 minutes before slicing.
