â ???? Typically, the general rule for an unfilled turkey at 325ºF is about 15 minutes per pound. When was the last time he ate? Â ????
â ???? Just one more question? Does he sit on the lounger and watch a soccer game while you cook? ????
“Look, honey, I bet you have the checkbook or the credit card”Tell him you need to run to the store Buy something nice for dinner Bring him back a single hamburger, no fries Let him eat that appetizer while you put on that nice new dress, and tell him you’re going to Thanksgiving.” go to a nice place to eat.

If you’re still scared that your turkey cooking question sounds silly, here are some fun stories from Butterball’s talk line that played on Reader’s Digest

The cooking lesson in this story is that the kids are always watching. It seems like the parents of a newly married couple have arrived home for their first Thanksgiving dinner that was cooked by the newlyweds. One of the fathers noticed the turkey in the Rinse in cold water with a drainer and a rubber mat over it. Her father asked why she was thawing the turkey like this. She said that was how her mother thawed the bird. Mother’s reply: “Well, yes, but we had a cat!” Meow!
A year ago a man called and used the talk line rather than a confessional without actually asking a question. He let the experts know that in his experience the cold water thaw method doesn’t really work. Curious asked the talk line – Operator what he meant because they use this thawing method on Butterball all the time. His answer: “I put it in the pool and when I came back it was missing”â ????
After an Alabama man discovered a turkey in his father’s freezer in 1969, he called the butterball helpline to ask about the best way to cook the 30-year-old bird. Counselors gave him two options: McDonald’s or Wendy’s
