Roasting a turkey
Go to http://extension.oregonstate.edu/fch/food-preservation
and find the Turkey Basics publication (under Holiday Fact Sheets) near the bottom of the page. The Turkey Basics publication will give you all the information you will need for safely cooking and storing your turkey. If you have any additional questions, I recommend you call our Food Safety & Preservation Hotline:
1-800-354-7319 (toll-free) - 9 AM to 4 PM Monday - Friday (through October 13th). The hotline has trained volunteers to respond to your food safety questions.
Enjoy your turkey and thanks for contacting Ask an Expert.
