A Guide to Telling If Your Turkey Is Thawed Yet — Thanksgiving Tips from The Kitchn

Thawing a turkey is a critical first step in roasting your Thanksgiving turkey. While you should plan a minimum of three days for a standard 12- to 15-pound bird, other factors, like the temperature of your fridge and your turkey's location in that fridge, will affect how long it takes your turkey to actually thaw. There are two ways to determine whether your turkey is completely thawed or not, and a few tips to follow if you find you have a slightly frozen turkey come Thursday.

How To Roast a Turkey Upside Down — Cooking Lessons from The Kitchn

Roasting a large turkey for Thanksgiving is challenging for even the most seasoned home cooks. There are the logistics of storing and thawing a 10-plus-pound orb of frozen poultry and then figuring out the per-pound math for roasting your particular turkey. You also have two different meats — light, tender breast meat prone to overcooking, and dark meat that needs extra time.

A simple solution to that last obstacle? Flip the bird over and roast it breast-side down. While this technique won't give you a picture-perfect turkey, it will protect the white meat from drying out, while cooking the thigh meat faster. Roasting a turkey upside down is just as simple as it sounds.
