If you’re preparing the Thanksgiving meal at your Akron, Ohio or Wadsworth, Ohio residence this season, Sherman Provision would like to provide you with some Turkey Cooking Tips to make your meal even more delicious!

How you proceed with cooking your turkey is determined on the condition in which you bought it: fresh or frozen. If using a frozen turkey, you’ll need to completely thaw it in the refrigerator. This can take several days depending on the size of your turkey, so you’ll want to make sure you have plenty of time. If you’ve invested in a fresh Thanksgiving turkey by Jaindl from Sherman Provision, your turkey should be ready to roast. Does your Akron family like stuffing added to the turkey? Consider making the stuffing the night before you cook your turkey and putting it into the fridge. This way, your stuffing and turkey will cook at the same temperature and will be the same temperature when going into the oven.

Before cooking the turkey, make sure the cavities are cleaned out. Once you’ve done this, rinse out the cavities and pat them dry. For extra flavoring and moisture as you cook your turkey, put several pats of butter in the cavities of the turkey. When your turkey is ready to cook, preheat the oven to 325 degrees. While the oven is preheating, put the stuffing in the cavities. From here, put the turkey in the pan breast side down (upside down) and cook according to weight. Remember to add the weight of the stuffing to the weight of the bird for accurate cooking times. Internal temperature should be 185 degrees.
