How long do I cook an 18-pound turkey in an electric roaster?

How long do I cook a 18 lb. turkey in an Nesco Electric roaster

An 18 lb. unstuffed turkey should cook for 2 to 2.5 hours. Keep in mind, the turkey might not brown as well using an electric roaster instead of the traditional open pan method, so we suggest using a browning sauce (mixture of butter, Kitchen Bouquet and paprika) for a nice, golden brown turkey.
