All of my turkey recipes in one place! It’s that time of year when the families start gathering and the food is plentiful! I dare say that Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. Not all of the stress of some of the other holidays, and definitely more food! I mean… the entire holiday is centered around a meal. And at the center of that meal?? The TURKEY! I’ve been a designated turkey recipe provider for years now, and I am sharing all I know with you! Let’s make this the Thanksgiving everybody talks about years later.

Gear & Gadgets for Perfect Turkeys
Toss out that pop-up button timer (they never work right anyways) and get an accurate thermometer. Check your turkey in 4 different points (both breasts and both thighs) without touching to bone to make sure you get a correct temperature reading.
I love my Thermoworks ThermoPop ($29, shown above) and my Thermoworks MK4 ($99). Both provide an accurate, digital readout, are available in a variety of colors and travel easily if you’re taking Thanksgiving on the road this year.
