Every holiday season the Butterball Turkey Talk-Line receives over 3 million questions by phone, email, and chat from turkey-anxious cooks. (You can call and ask about any turkey — not just a Butterball.) I visited their headquarters in Naperville, Illinois, and it was exactly how you'd picture it: There was an aroma of turkey, and everyone was on the phone or computer talking with callers or researching questions. There are big monitors on the wall that show the roasting time for any size bird. It's turkey central!
So when Butterball tells you their best tips and tricks for making a turkey, you better listen up. Here are a few things I learned while I was there that might help you too this Thanksgiving.
