Thanksgiving Turkey Tip

Measure Your Roasting Pan Before You Buy a Turkey

When ordering a turkey for Thanksgiving, don't just consider how many people you're serving, also take into account your method for cooking. If 16 guests will be attending, you'll need a 24-pound bird. However, that's a big piece of poultry, and it requires a large roasting pan and an even larger oven. Before you purchase a turkey, figure out how you're going to cook it and make sure you have the proper brining, roasting, and frying vessels and tools. Although there are plenty of special pans, don't be afraid to get creative. I've brined a turkey in a cooler and baked it in a disposable foil pan!
