Thanksgiving is one of the biggest food days of the year. The majority of Americans usually cook a turkey. And the folks at Butterball turkeys says there are always lots of people who wait to the last minute to buy a their bird, and then they panic when they realize it needs to be defrosted in a hurry.   “We get that question starting probably right about now. And we actually sometimes get it the day before Thanksgiving. But we can do a quick thaw method. Which is thawing the turkey in a sink of cold water and you need about 30 minutes per pound to do that. So put it in a sink. Some people will use a cooler, set down in a bathtub for a day. Like a 20 pound turkey might take 10 hours."  Marty Van Ness, a Turkey Talk Line supervisor with Butterball says they get about 100,000 calls every year at this time. Van Ness says their website can also answer a lot of your questions. We have put a link to it at KBND-dot-com.
