dangerous turkey

AnneM | Nov 16, 2006 06:45 PM

I was just reading through Martha Stewart's "Thanksgiving Made Easy" suggestions. She says to take out the turkey and let it sit at room temp 90 mins to 2 hrs before stuffing and putting it in the oven. Seems like a long time to me to let the bird just sit there. How long before it's dangerous? I always take the turkey from the fridge, prepare it and stuff it, then put it in the oven. It's still cold at that point. Is that wrong? My turkeys have been moist, tender and delicious.
