turkey New York, Nov 11 (THAINDIAN NEWS) Thanksgiving is fast approaching and the constant challenge of producing a juicy turkey is near as well. There is always a very fine line between producing a juicy sumptuous turkey and producing a dry uninviting turkey. Few turkey mistakes are responsible for this and this article will try to make you aware of them so that you don’t end up fretting over the turkey at the Thanksgiving Dinner.

1. Buying the wrong turkey. The first step to preparing your turkey should start from choosing your bird. All turkeys are not equal. When buying the turkey, check from the label to ensure that the bird contains the proper percentage of solutions.

2. Buying a wrong sized turkey. Your turkey should be precisely adequate for the occasion. Buying a turkey that is too big for the gathering will lead to the waste of the bird and buying too tiny bird can be very embarrassing. It is proper to ensure that you know the number of people coming for the Thanksgiving and properly get a bird that can serve that purpose.

3. Stuffing the turkey wrongly. What makes stuffing your turkey tricky is that for the bird to be considered safe to eat, the internal temperature of the bird should reach 165°F. However if the bird is stuffed, that temperature cannot be reached quickly and that can lead to the burning of the turkey. You can consider baking the stuffing separately.

4. Wrong carving of the bird. Carving the turkey is not just about getting the meat from the bones. Ensure that you have some carving tips from books or from the Internet and follow to ensure that your guests appreciate your work fully.

5. Throwing the roasting pan into the sink too early. Many people do not realize that by throwing the roasting pan away immediately after roasting the turkey deprives them of great spices that can make great gravy.
