if it's still frozen go ahead and put it in cold water. if you keep it in the original wrapper put it breast side down in the kitchen sink. it takes about 30 minutes a pound. it's going to be the quickest if it is rock solid right now. change that water pretty frequently and that will be the quickest way. >> so it makes a difference when you change the water. >> it does because initially this is so cold. when you put that water in it's going to really make that water cold. so if you change the water quicker. >> that's a good tip. >> once it's defrosted we recommend just in a 325 degree oven. place it in a shallow pan, you can see two or three inches deep. there's a flat rack. brush it with some vegetable oil. and that gives it that nice golden color. >> not butter, vegetable oil. >> exactly. and then your best friend on thanksgiving day is your meat thermometer. you have one, go ahead and put it right in the thigh. it needs to get 180. the breast should reach 170. >> okay. >> and then if you stuff the turkey the center of the stuffing should reach 165.
>> and a last tip, too. about 2/3 of the way through you're going to grab some reynolds foil. you're just going to shield the top of the breast. >> what does that do? >> it prevents the breast from getting overdone while you're waiting for that thigh meat to get to temperature. >> that is clever. okay. so it gives it that golden brown without the top getting burned. >> exactly. >> and that's, it just put a little tent over with the aluminum foil. >> you got it. it's very easy. >> it's very simple. >> and it will look like this when you're all done. >> it's beautiful. this bird is gorgeous. i've always wondered how you guys get that golden brown look to it. and what would you say has been the worst disaster you've had to intervene? >> we get so many fun calls. usually it's about thawing and they get rather creative on how they thaw. i have toddler twin boys at home. so a mom called. her husband was on thawing the turkey duty. and she hears a lot of laughter, she goes upstairs and there's her two little twin boys and the turkey right next to them. the husband's like i got them thawed, i got them cleaned p
she's like is this okay? i can understand you multitask. but always keep the turkey in its original little bath in the sink. >> so he had the turkey and the bath -- >> he was trying to get it all done. but we've had these in the jacuzzi. we've had them call, how long would it take to be in the jacuzzi -- >> my gosh. that's not something you recommend. >> no, no. keep it cold. keep it in its own bath. but we get a lot of cute calls. we get a lot of calls about recipes too, which is super fun. they kind of want simple go-to recipes that the whole family loves. so this year the talk line is 35 years old. >> wow. >> it is. we've been around a long time. and to celebrate we're doing a throwback thanksgiving theme. so similar to throwback thursday. so what we're doing is we're posting a lot of our favorite photos at butterball.com, some of our favorite recipes, and what's. really fun is we're having the viewers go to the website as well and paste -- and post, sorry, some of their favorite throwback memories. it's been really fun to see. >> i bet those classic recipes are delicious. >> they're great. >> oh, sue, thank you so much for joining us. >> well, thank you so much.
