The countdown is on! Less than a week until Thanksgiving!

Since the turkey is most often the star of this holiday meal, it's important that it be both delicious and prepared safely

To help you, the USDA has created these videos to show you step-by-step how to safely cook your turkey a variety of ways (deep fat fried, smoked, grilled, roasted, etc.) so you can avoid having foodborne illness ruin this special day with family, friends, and loved ones.
