In charge of roasting the turkey for your family’s Thanksgiving dinner? Use my turkey thawing and roasting times chart to determine how much thaw time and cook time you need to allow.

Just find your turkey size on the chart, to see how long you can expect it to take to thaw your turkey in the fridge. If you discover that you should have started thawing your bird sooner, don’t sweat it. This chart also includes instructions for thawing a turkey in cold water, which is loads faster. And for the ultimate procrastinators, there are even instructions for cooking a fully frozen turkey.

Stuffed turkeys take longer to roast than unstuffed turkeys, so this chart includes roasting times for both. If this is your first time roasting a turkey, be sure to check out my complete guide to turkey roasting. It includes a video to walk you through the process step-by-step.
