How to thaw a frozen turkey

Refrigerator Thawing:

  • Thaw turkey breast side up, in an unopened wrapper, on a tray in the refrigerator (at or below 40°F).
  • Allow at least 1 day of thawing for every 4 pounds of turkey.
  • Keep the turkey in its original wrapper and place it on a tray to catch any potential drips.
  • Use the thawed turkey within 4 days after it has fully thawed.

Cold Water Thawing:

  • Thaw the turkey breast side down, in an unopened wrapper, with enough cold water to completely cover the turkey.
  • Change the water every 30 minutes to ensure it stays cold and if the turkey cannot be fully covered, rotate it every 30 minutes to maintain even thawing.
  • Estimate a minimum thawing time of 30 minutes per pound of turkey.

Additionally, it's recommended to check on your turkey 24-36 hours ahead of your planned cooking time. If the turkey is still partially frozen on the outside, you can take it out of the fridge and let it sit at room temperature for up to 6 hours before cooking, checking it hourly to ensure it remains cool to the touch but not frozen.

Once fully thawed, your turkey can be kept in the refrigerator for an additional 1-2 days before cooking. This information is valuable for ensuring food safety and a successful Thanksgiving or holiday meal.

Blackwing Turkey FAQ

Q: When does the Blackwing Pre-Sale Discount end?
A: October 31st 2022
Q: How long does a thawed turkey keep in the fridge?
A: Thawed turkeys should be cooked within 1-2 days from being fully thawed.
Q: When will my pre-order turkey be delivered?
Pre-ordered turkeys will ship the week of November 14th with plenty of time to thaw before the big day.
Q: How long does it take to thaw a turkey?
A: We recommend thawing your turkey for at least 24 hours in the fridge for every 3 pounds of turkey.
Q: What size turkey should I get for Thanksgiving?
A: We recommend 1 to 1.5 pounds per person (1.5 should ensure leftovers).
Q: How long does it take to cook a pasture raised turkey?
A: We recommend 20 minutes per pound of turkey, but use an oven thermometer as pasture raised turkeys can cook faster (15-18 minutes per pound). A low cooking temperature at 325°F will do the trick. Use a cooking thermometer to make sure your turkey is at 165°.
Q: Do your turkeys include giblets?
A: Yes, each whole turkey includes a bag of giblets (including a heart, liver, and gizzard) and a neck, which you’ll find in the neck cavity.
Q: Are Blackwing Turkeys brined or basted?
A: No, our turkeys are not brined or basted. They do not contain any added salt, water, or fillers of any kind so they are perfect to brine. We don’t add any competing flavors to your holiday traditions, just 100% turkey.
Q: How do I brine a turkey?
A: The basic wet brine is one cup of coarse kosher salt or sea salt to one gallon of water, making enough to submerge the bird. We recommend not brining for longer than 12 hours. Herbs, fruits, and seasonings are all great additions to brines so be sure to customize to your tastes!
Q: Can I stack other promotions with the pre-order of a turkey?
You cannot combine other promotions with the pre-order of a pasture-raised turkey.
Q: How do I get my free Oven Mitt and Pot Holder Set?
Our free Oven Mitt and Pot Holder Set are available through October 31st or until supplies run out.
