The number one question remains the same: How long does it take to thaw a turkey?
According to one of the several YouTube videos uploaded by Butterball, you should plan to thaw your turkey one week before Thanksgiving, or one day for every four pounds.
A thawed turkey can stay in the fridge up to four days before cooking, Butterball says.
