Turkey Tips

Preparing a Thanksgiving turkey can be a daunting task, especially for a first-time host. Calm your nerves with these basic tips to help you produce a juicy, delicious bird for family and friends.

  • For a big party, choose a large bird, around 15 to 20 pounds. Smaller birds have a smaller meat-to-bone ratio, so there will be more per person.
  • When thawing the turkey, thaw it in the refrigerator to reduce the risk of harmful bacteria.
  • Stuffing expands as it bakes, so leave some room in the turkey’s cavity. This allows stuffing to cook more evenly and keeps it from becoming too dense.
  • Let your turkey rest at least 30 minutes before carving. If your turkey is stuffed, remove the stuffing before carving.
