Not Thawing the Turkey in Time
You can’t roast a frozen turkey, so days before Thanksgiving, be sure to take your bird out of the freezer and put it into your fridge. How long should you thaw your turkey for? One day of thawing time for every four pounds of turkey. Keep it in its plastic wrap, put it on a baking tray to catch any juices or blood and just leave it in your refrigerator.
