    Bought 8lb turkey friday (frozen) at Friday 6:30 and it's been out all night and today and just been put in the fridge.

    Reason? Argument with parents, saying it's ok to do that.:rolleyes:

    So just wondering if it's ok to cook and eat. Saying "during the war" :rolleyes:

    God I hate old people.

    Yes, the sensible thing to do is put it in the fridge.

    I'd have expected this kind of thread from JamFish instead.

    When you say don't feed the troll, do you mean not provide advice so he doesn't eat tomorrow?

    Berties: It should be fine, it would take almost 24 hours to defrost... so unless it has been kept in a very warm room it will be fine.

    The most important thing is to cook it properly.

    Best to leave it out so that the poor thing doesn't suffocate.

    Many years ago my son said he would provide the turkey and he duly turned up at lunchtime on Christmas Eve with the biggest turkey I've ever seen - frozen solid.

    Instead of unwinding with a drink or ten I had to jump in the car and do a tour of butchers trying to find one that we could actually eat in 24 hours time and after drawing a blank at several shops I finally found a butcher with just one left which I gratefully bought

    It will be fine and cooking it slowly won't be anyworse (in fact potentially better) than cooking it quickly. As long as all the turkey gets to 74c for 30secs the bacteria will be killed. But the bacteria will die at lower temperatures too but they need to be at that temperature for longer.
