I am cooking a bone in turkey breast, 8 lb. 350 for 20 min/lb. at an hour and a half in my desired internal temp of 160 is reached, do I trust the time or temp? Thanks in advance.

    always temp

    I hate it when I go to the kitchen for food and all I find are ingredients!

    Trust the temp. Turkey whole goes about 15 min a pound tops at 325. Breasts are much faster

    Definitely go by temp. I cooked one last weekend and it was done in an hour and a half.

    Trust the temp.

    I assume you have a dependable meat thermometer.

    Thanks all, Juices are clear, meat is firm, must be done.

    Well if your desired temp is 160 then what does time have to do with it? :blush:

    As said before, the only thing time is mentioned for is to let you know approximately how many of your favorite beverages to have on hand during cook
