ed, what's your tip on stuffing? >> my tip is dry the bread. if you dry the bread when you make the stuffing, it will be fluffy instead of soggy. also i like to use the combination of rye and pumper nickel. also cut all your vegetables a day or two before so you're ready to be eating on thanksgiving and not so much cooking. >> so stale bread, fluffy stuffing. look who's here, curtis stone is here. how do you stuff a bird? >> now that you've made the au little gravy on my actually because that's going to help keep it nice and moist. in terms of stuffing the turkey, you're literally going to pick it up and stuff the cavity like that. if you have a little left over, make sure you stuff it the day of, not the day before. you take that stuffing and get like a little cupcake mold or muffin and you get these little cupcakes of stuffing. >> thank you very much, curtis. i've got brian. you have an essential tool that
>> the biggest question is how do you tell that the turkey is ready. if you invest a little money into one of these instant read thermometers with a probe, instead that down in between the thigh and the leg and forget about it. you can get one of these nifty little things here and you can go about your day working on your other dishes or side dishes and this will go off and let you know when the turkey is ready. >> like being at a restaurant and getting a table. >> you get a next and it's done. >> i've got brian hardy. you say a rested >> exactly. mine is a little more low tech but if you want to have moist turkey on the holiday, everybody asks me that, give it a break, let it rest. take a little timer, costs a little bit less. when you take it out of the oven, you'll have the moistest bird ever. >> i've got seamus making the perfect gravy. >> obviously turkey gets a little dry and gravy makes it nice and moist. instead of having boring gravy,
gravy to it, add some clove, cinnamon, mulling spices, strain that off and you've got a nice beautiful gravy. >> how about seamus mullen, huh? >> we're moving over to my pal, brian lewis. you like a little spice mix on the outside. >> absolutely. i like to take cinnamon as well, cinnamon, sage, orange peel, black pepper and thyme. let it cook and take the same salt, a nice coarse salt over the top of the turkey and really lifts that flavor out. >> love it. everybody gets a little anxious about carving the bird, bobby. >> you know, al, every family has that uncle that grabs the carving knife at every thanksgiving and messes the bird up. i like to take the entire breast, both sides of the breast off in whole and slice it in
the platter like this. take the dark meat, the thighs and legs and put those out hole. >> just put your half cup broth, half cup gravy and put it in a skillet and it makes it nice and moist. >> spectacular. >> really well done, thank you. 20 down. >> 10 to go. remember, you can find this advice at sotoday.com/food. up next, timely the rest of you
