Your turkey is done when:
  • a meat thermometer in the inner thigh reads 180F (82C) for a stuffed turkey.
  • a meat thermometer in the inner thigh reads 170F (77C) for an unstuffed turkey.
  • the legs move easily when twisted and the juices run clear
When the turkey is done remove it from the oven or barbecue. Cover with foil and let it stand 15-20 minutes before carving.
