There is more than one way to cook your bird for Thanksgiving

-A A +A
By Norm Harding, Reporter

Thanksgiving dinner usually revolves around a glorious, bronzed, succulent roast turkey. This is actually one of the easiest parts of the meal.

Plan on about 1-1/2 pounds of turkey for each person. You can buy a frozen turkey and thaw it ahead of time, cook your turkey still frozen (see below) or order a fresh bird. With a frozen bird, you have to plan ahead to thaw it. It takes at least 24 hours in the refrigerator for every 5 pounds of turkey, so a 20-pound bird will take 4-5 days to thaw.
