VIDEO: Time for Turkey!

The countdown is on! Two days until Thanksgiving!

Since the turkey is most often the star of this holiday meal, it’s important that it be both delicious and prepared safely.

We’ve already talked turkey, but to help you even more, the USDA has created these videos to show you step-by-step how to safely cook your turkey a variety of ways (deep fat fried, smoked, grilled, roasted, etc.) so you can avoid having foodborne illness ruin this special day with family, friends, and loved ones.

There’s also a right way and a wrong way to discard the oil from the deep fryer. Here’s a Sun-Times article explaining that.
