In case you find yourself in the predicament I was in of needing to thaw a 20-pound frozen turkey in 10 hours or less, we've got your covered.

In your moment of panic, just remember to not heat your turkey to defrost it (counter-thawing and hot water = bad idea).

It's actually quite easy.

SHOP: Truly all natural turkey

Bring the farmer's tradition into your family's tradition.

  1. Place your turkey in a large bucket and fill with COLD water.
  2. Change the water every 30 minutes (dump and refill).

My hack for this year? I used a large garden bucket and my hose outside. This way I could just dump the water on my lawn.

That's thirty minutes per pound so to defrost a 20 lb turkey, it takes just 10 hours!
