Carol Woodson - Mom wrote these directions down for me when I was about to have my first Thanksgiving. Because the turkey's have surely improved over the past 20 years, I would suggest going by the time suggest on the package. Perhaps cook them a little longer and slower than recommended. The only sister that has ever had a flop with this recipe is Jane.
