It was frozen this morning. Put it in at 9 am in a tub full of cold water... its 10:41 now. Do I leave it there over night? Fridge? Sink? I dunno :oops: HELP! Its only a 15 lbs bird.

I go by this:



Defrosting




First of all, if you've bought a frozen turkey, you'll need to defrost it. This works best if you plan ahead

It should be good then, although we've not been replacing the water that frequently :?
