Remember to take the turkey out of the freezer!

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
It's time to start thawing your turkey in the next couple of days ~ Thanksgiving is only 1 week away!!!

If you have a 22-23 lb or larger it should already be in your fridge. On average a 23 lb turkey takes about 6 days to thaw.

If you have a 18-20(ish) lb make sure you take it out today, tomorrow at the latest.


ALL birds being thawed in the fridge should be out of the freezer by Sunday to give them ample time to thaw. In a 40* fridge you need to allow 24 hrs per 4 lbs of bird.


If you forget to remove the turkey, no worries, a turkey can also be thawed breast side down in a cold water bath at the ratio of 30 min per 1 lb of turkey. Just remember to change the water often (about every 30 - 45 min or so).
