My turkey is still frozen and I'm having a panick attack. Need advice

I've had this huge 18 lb bird in my fridge defrosting since Sunday. I go out to check it today and it's still hard as a rock!! I have to inject it tomorrow so it will be ready for me to cook friday. What on earth can I do???? DH says take it out of the fridge today and let it sit on the counter. That kinda scares me. What do I do????

  • soak it in the sink full of cold water and turn it and change the water often

  • Run it under cold - if it's too big to do that in your sink, like a laundry basket with plastic and set it up in the shower/bathtub.

  • Yes, cold water will do the trick. It's called a force thaw. Just change the water frequently and you will be fine.
