1) To save time and space on Thanksgiving Day, try making your turkey ahead of time. Carve it and place the turkey in a shallow pan. Add 2 tablespoons of broth or gravy and heat it in the oven (covered) at 350 F the day of Thanksgiving.
2) Place your turkey in the middle of the oven and use an oven thermometer to guage the temperature. The oven should not be set below 300 F to ensure safety.
