lefthanded guitar BS: How to get a frozen turkey to the table (73* d) BS: How to get a frozen turkey to the table 12 Dec 17


I recently, through very little effort or ambition on my own part, came into the possession
of a frozen turkey.( Must be at least 20 lbs as I almost threw my back out getting it from car to kitchen. ) So here I am with my frozen turkey. Just in time for the holidays. Which made me realize how very fortunate I 've been for many years; having been invited as a guest on the holidays for so long, I ve forgotten how to cook one. That is, I m not sure how to make the transition from frozen mass of meat in the freezer to getting it properly and safely into a hot oven.
Cooking, as I remember , was not the really tough part of the job;
- just throw it in the pan with some onions and maybe some garlic and
let it go for about four hours. It s that tricky dance from miniature iceberg to heated succulent dinner that I m not sure of. Cook on a low light ? Defrost in fridge? In the sink? And stuffing??In the bird?? Around the bird??? Tho truth be told, a packaged mix
by Stovetop is beginning to seem quite appealing.

Well I could take the easy way out and trust the 3 or 4 thousand cooking sites
that come up in Google- but I ve had so much good luck on mudcat with
my previous culinary themed questions - I thought I d throw it out to you
folks again, and see what you all say. Advice, recommendations, and turkey themed
folklore are all welcome!
