The most important thing to remember when cooking a frozen turkey is that it will take about 50% longer than a regular thawed turkey. So, for a 12-13 lb. turkey, it will take about 4-1/2 to 5 hours, versus 3 hours for a thawed turkey.
The key to cooking a frozen turkey is to make sure the turkey is completely frozen - a partially-thawed turkey is not safe to cook.
Start by assembling your ingredients. You will need:
- 1 8-18 lb. frozen turkey
- onions, carrots, celery, cut into 1-inch pieces
- 2-3 cups water
- olive oil or melted butter
- poultry seasoning
