If the turkey is frozen be sure to defrost it in the refrigerator. Depending on the size it can take up to 3 to 4 days to defrost thoroughly.
Room temperature simply means that the bird shouldn't come straight out of the refrigerator. You don't want to let the bird sit around for hours; remove from fridge about 30 minutes before roasting while you make the stuffing.
