Let's talk turkey.

Most of us in the US will be eating turkey for Thanksgiving. There are soooo many ways to cook your turkey and so many things that can go wrong that Butterball fields over 100,000 calls from frantic cooks each year hoping to salvage their feasts.

We go to a big family gathering and have a roast turkey, a smoked turkey and a fried turkey each year, but the only one I cook is the one that we have here for leftovers- and I bake mine in a cooking bag- they brown perfectly and minimize the mess tremendously.

You can find out the basics here including what size turkey to buy, how to thaw and cook it safely, the perfect recipe, even what to serve with it and of course the ever popular what to do with the leftovers. Looking for a new family tradition? There is even a $2 off coupon. Anything you want to know, they've got you covered. And of course if you run into problems you can always call 1-800-BUTTERBALL (1-800-288-8372).

Thanks for the tips, Sherry! Isn't it funny that something as basic as roasting a bird can be done in so many different (and tasty) ways! I love to brine my turkey overnight and then use my tried-and-true, no-baste roasting technique. For instructions on brining your bird, check out our post at: The Perfect Thanksgiving Turkey
