While Thanksgiving sides are amazing, stuffing isn’t to be missed, and desserts speak for themselves, the turkey IS the feast.

What to Look for in Choosing a Thanksgiving Turkey

Williams-Sonoma shares a few things to consider when making your big decision.

Fresh vs. Frozen:
Fresh turkeys are chilled to 26 degrees and sold immediately. They should be cooked one to two days after they’re purchased. Fresh turkeys are a bit more expensive than frozen.

A fresh turkey’s flavor is richer and more intense. The texture is more firm than its frozen counterpart.

How to Defrost a Frozen Turkey:

“Defrost the turkey completely by placing it in the refrigerator in its original packaging (and, ideally, another tray or container to catch any drippings). Leave it in the refrigerator for 24 hours per every five pounds of turkey.”
