My Annual Turkey Cooking Tips for Newbies.
1) If you buy a frozen bird, the bird should be defrosting in your fridge today (3 days before cooking)
2) Check the neck cavity and the body cavity for the giblet bag. Nothing ruins a nicely roasted bird than a raw giblet bag.
3) If you're deep frying the bird, place the bird on the holder and place in the fryer, use water using gallon jugs to estimate how much oil you need. Make sure the water level ends up about 5 inches below the top of the fryer. For example, 3.5 gallons of water = 3.5 gallons of oil.
