Input information:

turkey cooking time |  \nturkey weight | 20 lb  (pounds)\ncooking environment | standard


Result:

cooking time | 4.5 hours\n= 16000 seconds\n= 4 hours 30 minutes\ncooking time with stuffing | 5 hours\n= 18000 seconds\n= 300 minutes


Equation:

t = (W\/(20 lb))^(2\/3) T | t_stuffing = (W\/(20 lb))^(2\/3) T + 30 min |  \nt | cooking time\nW | turkey weight\nT | cooking environment\nt_stuffing | cooking time with stuffing\nlb | pound (~~ 0.4536 kg)\nmin | minute (= 60 s)\n(using the heat equation for a spherical turkey in a 325 °F oven)


Cooking environment base time:

4.5 hours  (for a 20 lb turkey at sea level)


Cooking time vs. weight:

Frame


Available meat:

8 lb  (pounds)\n(assuming 40% of total weight is usable meat)


Thawing times:
