Is cooking a really big turkey any different from a smaller one?

Is there anything different about cooking a larger turkey over a smaller one? We have a 21 pound turkey for tomorrow and I am wondering if I should cook it any differently. (slower oven for a longer time so the top doesn't burn or dry out too much?) It will be stuffed. Does anyone have any experience with bigger birds? Thanks
