Re: Thawing turkey

I think I would leave it in the fridge all day today and then tomorrow maybe leave it in the sink if it wasn't getting anywhere in the fridge.

I am leery of defrosting things at room temperature, though. Maybe someone here can chime in on food safety?

Whole Turkey—24 hours defrosting time for each 5 pounds

Cold Water Method
Place turkey or turkey parts in their original packaging under cold water in a sink or deep pan. Change water as often as needed to keep it cold. Allow the following amount of defrosting time:
