Turkey Pop Up Timer Instructions & Cooking Instructions for Turkey, Turkey Breast Roast & Capons

Turkey Pop Up Timer Instructions & Cooking Instructions for Turkey, Turkey Breast Roast & Capons


This year we have added a pop up timer into ever turkey purchase for full instructions please see below:

For preparation perfection the Pop Up Timer is the answer. These timers eliminate guesswork in accurately measuring temperatures and indicating 'doneness', therefore reducing risk and increasing safety. The timer is easy to insert into any product.

Push the pop up timer into the thickest part of the breast and pop the turkey into the oven. The pop up timer will 'pop up' when the meat reaches a temperature of 163 degrees Fahrenheit/ 73 degrees centigrade which is the internal temperature you want for it to be cooked. Please also ensure juices run clear also.

This video is really helpful and shows how to use it on a whole turkey. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y3zSl97LLPo&feature=emb_logo

Please note if your turkey has been stuffed, it is important to check the temperature of the stuffing. The stuffing should also be 73 degrees.

The pop up timer is suitable for: 
Turkey Crown
Turkey breast 3 – 7 lbs
Beef medium rare 7 – 10lbs
Beef well done under 10lbs
Veal, Meat loaf, Pork roast 4-8 lbs

Turkey Cooking Instructions: 

Cooking times are based on an unstuffed bird. It's safer to cook your stuffing in a separate roasting tin rather than inside the bird, so that it cooks more easily and the guidelines are more accurate.

If you cook your bird with the stuffing inside, you need to allow extra time for the stuffing and for the fact that it cooks more slowly.

As a general guide, in an oven preheated to 180C (350F, gas mark 4):

  • allow 45 minutes per kilogram, plus 20 minutes, for a turkey under 4.5kg
  • allow 40 minutes per kilogram for a turkey that's between 4.5kg and 6.5kg
  • allow 35 minutes per kilogram for a turkey of more than 6.5kg

Cover your turkey with foil during cooking but uncover it for the final 30 minutes to brown the skin. To stop the meat drying out, baste it every hour during cooking.

Rolled Turkey Breast Roast Cooking Times: 

With a boneless turkey breast joint, the shape is even and you’re not worrying about dry breast and undercooked leg pieces.

Weigh the meat. At 180°C in a Fan Assisted oven: allow 20 minutes for every kg and then add 70 minutes if the joint is under 4kg or 90 minutes if it’s over 4kg.

Then add a further 15 minutes simply because you will open the oven during the roast, you’ll be adding other things to the oven as the meat cooks. This lowers the temperature and hinders heat reaching the bird. That extra 15 minutes is a good safety net. In any case, always cook until the juices run clear when skewered in the centre.

 

Capon Cooking Times: 

Weigh the meat. At 180°C in a Fan Assisted oven: Place capon on a rack in a roasting pan. Roast for 15 minutes per pound (454g) or until juices are clear. Then add a further 15 minutes simply because you will open the oven during the roast, you’ll be adding other things to the oven as the meat cooks. This lowers the temperature and hinders heat reaching the bird. That extra 15 minutes is a good safety net. In any case, always cook until the juices run clear when skewered in the centre.

Remember if you cook your bird with the stuffing inside, you need to allow extra time for the stuffing and for the fact that it cooks more slowly.
