Thanksgiving Turkey 101: How To Select, Prepare, and Serve

Traditions abound at Thanksgiving—and each family has its own. For some, Thanksgiving dinner isn’t complete without grandma’s secret gravy recipe. For others, it’s the green bean casserole or the pecan pie. For others, it’s the tradition of Dad carving the turkey at the head of the table, or all the children reciting the things for which they are thankful.

But one thing is certain—nearly every Thanksgiving dinner centers around a big, juicy, golden brown, roasted-to-perfection turkey. That’s why we’ve put together this A to Z guide of how to select, prepare, and serve your Thanksgiving turkey.

This year, let us help you treat your family to the juiciest, freshest, most natural and wholesome turkey available anywhere—a fresh All-Natural Thanksgiving Turkey from Lobel’s of New York.

It’ll truly be your most memorable Thanksgiving yet.
