For a stuffed turkey , the roasting time may vary up to 30 minutes, depending upon the bird and the oven. Use the meat thermometer to check the temperature of the dressing. The center of the dressing inside the bird (or in a separate baking dish) must reach a temperature of 165 degrees Fahrenheit for food safety. Because of the variability of cooking times, it's always safer to cook stuffing outside of the bird . If you are going to stuff it, check the temperature of the dressing before serving and don't be afraid to microwave it to make sure the temperature is right. A moist, low-temperature environment is ideal for bacteria , and these are guests no one wants at their holiday dinner.

So, these methods will vary in time, so let’s assume it takes another 30 days. Now we’re up to what, 45 days?
