  4. Cover loosely with foil.
  5. Roast in preheated 325 degree oven for 1 hour. Remove foil.
  6. Roast 2-2 1/2 hours longer or until internal temp reaches 165 degrees. Baste occasionally with pan juices. Remove turkey from over and let stand 20 minutes before slicing. Reserve pan juices for gravy.
