Love the defrosting guide.......sure will help plan my day better and not have a 1/2 frozen Turkey to stuff. Yes, that actually happened to me a couple of years ago. Think I'd have known better.....I do now!!!!!
I'm not so sure about the roasting time of the turkey. You suggest 15-18 min. per pound. That calculated to 5.23 hrs for my 20.93 lb bird. On the Butterball turkey itself it says for a 18-22 lb unstuffed turkey to cook it for 3 1/2 - 4 hours.
I think I will use what the turkey people say. Sorry Sparkpeople.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone and good luck eveyrone.
Interesting - only I live in Canada and we celebrate our thanksgiving in October (No not because its SO COLD up here - Martin Frobisher celebrated it in 1578). I have to question the wisdom of buying a prebasted bird as the ones I am familiar with (ButterBall) are injected with a TON of COCONUT OIL amongst other rather nasty things. We got one one time as a gift. Its seems to me to be worht the time and trouble to prepare it all oneself ,mainly because then you have more control over what does and doesn't go into the bird.
Thanks for the useful information and I will keep it in a safe spot with my others. I appreciate that you have posted this information, b/c I keep forgetting all this. It will help me on Thanksgiving and Christmas meals. Thanks again. Alaskan
