Can I thaw my turkey on the kitchen counter?

So your turkey’s hard as a rock, it’s not thawing out in time … can you just put it on the counter?

Well, doing so might warrant a new slogan for your Thanksgiving event:

“We put the hospital in hospitality!

Seriously, meat on the counter is a health code violation for a good reason.  Don’t even go there.

What you can do is a cold water bath, like this.

Otherwise, it’s going to take a day per 4-5 pounds of turkey in the fridge.
