Default Thawed and Ready Today...NOT THURSDAY

Someone put the turkey and turkey breast in the fridge instead of the freezer. I went to pull them out and found the screw-up. Lucky I caught it as they may not have made it five more days.

Wish I could blame it on someone else...

Glad I have my vacuum sealer!

I appreciate the company, maybe we can move the other holidays up a week as well.

So how long can a thawed turkey remain in the fridge before you HAVE to cook it?

Not an expert, but I would say only 4-5 days for me. Add on the 3-4 days to thaw and I figured it was best to smoke today!

Better safe than sick.

Default Turkey Time!

All is good...off the smoker and resting. The skin on the breast only is not perfect, but I had planned for that to be for sandwiches anyway.

Nice save. Looks good. I plan to smoke mine Wednesday night and reheat Thursday. What's your plan for reheating?

We ate dinner this evening and then I filled 6 small to medium sized vacuum bags with my Weston and into the freezer. It took longer to clear the birds. I will place in a large pan of boiling water for 20-30 minutes and serve once thoroughly warmed through.

I would recommend reheating in several 2# foil packages in the oven or possibly the crock pot if oven space is at a premium. Bring it up to temp 140* and serve immediately.

Turned out mighty fine looking!

I had to cook mine early as well. Oh well, Ham it is on Thursday.

The wife asked me if it needed to be froze and I knew it need time to thaw so I told her to refrigerate.... a week earlier than was supposed to. Oops! No wonder she looked at me funny when I told her to put in fridge.

Out of fridge, generous olive oil and SM Season All on the bird and YardBird on the breast. RO Lump with a few small pecan chunks. Very simple...

It was cold here today. 1st hour at 250, followed by 325-350 remainder of cook, about 4 hours.
