Mark with tape after you pull the bird out, not before. I had a friend do that and he had a massive overflow.
Also best if bird is out of the wrapper.

Turkey has a large cavity which fills with oil. If you don't allow the water in there while measuring, you could end up with not enough oil in there for them bigger birds.
