HOW TO TIME A KELLYBRONZE

A KELLYBRONZE WILL COOK IN HALF THE TIME BECAUSE OF THE EXTRA INTRAMUSCULAR FAT THAT IS NOT PRESENT IN A STANDARD BIRD

Step 1
1.
TAKE IT OUT THE FRIDGE
first thing in the morning, and let it come up to room temperature (this allows the meat to relax before going in the oven).
Step 2
2.
SWITCH ON YOUR OVEN
approx half an hour before you want to start cooking (don't put your turkey in until your over is up to temperature).
Step 3

COOKING TIME
A KellyBronze will cook in half the time because of the extra intramuscular fat that is not present in a standard bird. (Please see guideline times below.)
Step 4
4.
ALL OVENS VARY (especially fan ovens)
To avoid over-cooking, use your KellyBronze Thermometer regularly from half way through our recommended cooking time (see below).
Step 5
5.
TRUST YOUR THERMOMETER
Take your turkey out of the oven as soon as the Thermometer reaches 60°C. The meat temperature will continue to climb to 65°C while resting.
Step 6
6.
ALLOW AT LEAST HALF HOUR FOR RESTING
Don't be tempted to cover it - it won't go cold - in fact it will continue to cook. Resting is important because it helps tenderise the meat.

How do you like yours?
If the temperature of the meat after standing for 30 mins is: 60°C - It's Pink
65°C - It's Perfect
70°C - It's Overcooked

Because of our dry artisan process, our product is very safe from food poisoning bugs, so the meat does not need to reach the same high temperatures as standard turkey. All ovens vary so use and trust your thermometer from half way through cooking.
