Food safety - turkey

Minxish | Oct 5, 2012 04:42 AM

I'm in charge of the turkey this year for the first time ever (although I cooked one last year for my boyfriend and myself, and it turned out wonderfully) and the site of the family festivities is my sister's house. My mom and my sister are telling me the best thing to do is start the turkey at home, cook it about halfway through, then transport it to my sisters house (about a 20-minute drive) and finish there. Is this safe? I'm reluctant but my mom is pulling her usual I-did-it-lots-of-times-and-nothing-ever-happened card. Fair enough, but she also used to leave cooked foods like lasagne at room temperature overnight for us to eat the next day. I still can't believe none of us was ever sick.

Thoughts? (on the turkey... I already know the lasagne thing is bad. :-))
