Hosting first t'giving: fresh or frozen turkey?

King B | Oct 27, 2005 03:04 PM

My wife and I will be hosting both families for the first time this year, and we've been discussing what kind of turkey to buy. We both grew up on our parents' frozen turkeys at thanksgiving, but are now wondering if fresh might be better tasting. Is there a difference? Also, we assume the cooking process itself would be different (true?) - and therefore timing everything else.

Any thoughts are greatly appreciated. We'd rather not screw up our first effort, but I'm sure there are thanksgiving gods that ensure snafus of some kind for first-timers.
