  1. Always make sure you measure the following temperatures in your turkey:

    180°F in thigh
    170°F in breast
    165°F in stuffing I like seeing what temps i should cook it at

  2. I learned never thaw a turkey at room temperature. I am going to cook mine in the oven and thaw in the refrigerator.

  3. I learned you can get other versions of a turkey besides a whole bird 🙂 I will be getting a FROZEN WHOLE TURKEY BREAST this year as I’m by myself 🙂

  4. When you are getting ready to cook a TURKEY, always wash your turkey before prepping it for cooking. I will do this when I get ready to FRY MY TURKEY this year!

  5. I learned that the best way to make sure your turkey is done is by using a meat thermometer. I gonna use this method instead of just using the appox. cooking time posted for roasting turkeys.

  6. I love the roasting method butterball shares. I have been doing my butterball this way for years. It always turns out so moist and so good. Thank you so much for sharing this.

  7. I learned that if you are going to smoke your turkey you are not supposed to stuff it. We are going to try our hand at smoking a turkey this year.

  8. I learned more about how to check for doneness of my turkery. It’s another potluck dinner for us and this year a relative will hosting and be in charge of cooking the Turkey

  9. I learned to let my turkey sit for a full 20 minutes before starting to carve. Great tip! What a terrific contest, I hope everyone has a terrific Thanksgiving! 🙂

  10. I learned from the Butterball web site that I should always make sure to measure the following temperatures in the turkey: through these parts of the whole bird. I didn’t know that I usually just check it right in the center. Very interesting. Thanks!!

    180°F in thigh
    170°F in breast
    165°F in stuffing

  11. I learne that–>Refrigerator thawing is preferred and the least labor-intensive but requires more time. Yet, I like to put the whole turkey into a crock pot and let it do its magic! lol

  12. I learned that if you stuff your turkey, only use cooked ingredients in your stuffing. I will cook mine in the oven this year with stuffing.

  13. I noticed their instructions on how to inject a turkey with flavors. I’d like to try that, but this year I’ll stick to the traditional turkey, usually using a baking bag because it’s easier.

  14. I won’t be preparing a Turkey this year but I did learn where to place a meat thermometer to check if the Turkey is cooked all the way through by watching their Meat Thermometer Placement Video

    1. I learned the Turkey is done when the meat thermometer inserted in the thighbone reads 180 F degrees and 170 F degrees in the breast

  15. i learned how to thaw my turkey properly! i plan on cooking it with a brine of olive oil and vinegar and some spices!

  16. i learned u can marinate a turkey i did not know this but i will do mine the traditional way bake it n stuff it til browned

  17. amy guillaume linderman

    we hope to do a rotisserie turkey! i learned to place the spit on the rotisserie and cook over medium heat (325° F) to an internal temperature of 170° F.

  18. I learned that “Each thigh and each side of the breast should be injected with .5 ounces of marinade for every 5 lbs. of turkey.” I plan to inject my turkey this year.

  19. I learned to always cook my turkey breast down for the juiciest breast around. We turn it over about a hour before it’s done to get that crispy skin… yummy I can’t wait to make mine this year

  20. We have always wanted to deep fry a turkey but I am too afraid of fire. I think we will inject marinade and roast. I used to guess when the turkey was done but now have a meat thermometer to keep my guests safe.

  21. I learned that I have been missing out on some great recipes! I want to try a few of them it’ll be hard to narrow it down. I also learned how long to brine the turkey. I’m going to try that this year
