People also ask, how do I know if my turkey is done without a thermometer?
The internal temperature should reach180°F.To check for doneness without athermometer, piercethe thigh and pay attention tothe juices: ifthe juices run clear, it'scooked, and if thejuices are reddish pink, it needsmore time. Put the turkeyback in the oven andcheck again after a shorttime.
is the turkey done when the button pops out? When the metal melts, it releases the red stick (A)andthe spring (C) pops up the stick so you knowtheturkey is done. Turkey is done whenitreaches 165 degrees Fahrenheit (73 degrees Celsius). Ifitregisters 165 degrees Fahrenheit, it's done.
Also Know, is Turkey done at 165 or 180?
Some confusion is inevitable, as until 2006, theFDArecommended a cooking temperature of 165 for the breastmeatand 180 for the thighs. For turkey that's165degrees, you'll want to remove the bird from the ovenwhen thetemperature reaches 155 to 160 degrees because it willcontinue tocook outside the oven.
