I am a little confused on the cooking time you provided. What does it mean 11/3 to 13/4? Is not cooking a turkey based on its weight determine the number of minutes per pound? I agree with the meat thermometer into the thigh avoiding the bone for accurate temperature reading. I might be incorrect but I thought the cooking time of say 15 or 20 minutes per pound Xs 11 lb Turkey equals 2.75 hours based on 15minutes/ pound and 3.667 hours for 20 minutes/pound cooking. Does your 11/3 to 13/4 translate to 2.1 hrs? Curious.
