So I would love to know, What do you ladies do for your thanksgiving turkey?? I really do not want to ruin our turkey so any advice or suggestions, anything, will help! I will be cooking for 4 adults and one child. I wouldn't mind having leftovers if it actually turns out good.Answer Question

This is the 100% absolute way to not screw up your turkey. It's counter to what most people learned from their mother, but it results in perfect turkey every single time. Don't stuff the bird - the only way you'll get the stuffing up to safe temp is by overcooking the turkey, do the stuffing separate - that's a food safety issue, not a flavor or preference issue. You do not want your first Thanksgiving to be remembered a the one that gave everyone salmonella.
There is a downside to making the turkey this way. After the first one, we are required to make the turkey every year, even if Thanksgiving isn't at our house. Violence occurs if we suggest letting someone else do it.
