For many, the Thanksgiving dinner is one of the best opportunities to have their entire family and friends together and thus the juiciest and most delicious turkey is a must. Though there are ample turkey recipes available on the web, it is essential that one chooses the right turkey for cooking. Various websites are thus suggesting ways to make the best turkey be it grilled or roasted.

While many are busy trying to figure out the best stuffing for their turkey, many are novices in the cooking of the bird itself. For those cooking it for the first time, it is essential to know the basics of cooking the white meat. It is often seen that the turkey remains hard and chewy in spite of a long cooking time. To avoid the situation, one should ensure that the brining of the bird is done properly. An overnight soak ensures that the meat is moist and soft after being roasted or even grilled, as some suggest. This year the web has been abuzz with the recipes for grilled turkeys. The concept allows one to keep free oven space and bake other items such as breads, cakes and rolls for the Thanksgiving dinner.

Two visible trends in turkey cooking have also cropped up this year. A cellphone application provides recipes and other procedures that the cook needs to follow and many have been scrambling the web for it. For those who are planning a rather gala affair for the Thanksgiving, there is ‘Turducken’ which is a combination of all three chicken, duck and turkey (all stuffed inside each other on the basis of size) on one plate.
