Is it time to defrost the turkey?

Today is Monday, so three days should be sufficient.

Miss my turkey, lived in the US for 20 years, now, back in my home country, Brazil.

You'd have been better off buying fresh.

Just make sure you defrost it in the fridge, OP.

The sooner you start defrosting it in your fridge, the better. I find it takes longer to defrost than the three days, even with chickens. Also some of us got the discount frozen turkeys because they were within our budget boundaries. Enjoy

Advice, please.

Can I cook a frozen turkey?

I completely forgot to defrost mine, and I just took it out of the freezer.

Can I put it straight in the oven?

Oh, holy cow! You fucked up.

Let it sit on the counter starting now. Plan for a good 4-5 hours on the counter before you can think about cooking it. If you go from ice cold to oven hot, your bird will be as dry as Nan’s pussy.

Thanks, R7!

Any salmonella danger from leaving it out on the counter for such a long period of time?

R6, order a pizza.

You can also defrost it by filling your sink (or a bucket) with cool water and submerging the turkey. But, as R7 said, you done fucked up gurl.

No, r8, there’s no danger of salmonella as long as you don’t let it get below approximately 50°F, but a fully frozen bird won’t reach that temperature for many hours just sitting on the counter.
