    My mothe had roasted a turkey all my life and I roast do my own now. I have only one question, why do my turkey bleed and hers never did. We both used frozen turkeys, but mine bleed into the stufing as it cook. How can I stop his from happening?

    • Dee says:

      Sorry, I answered the wrong question. See my answer below, try using a brined turkey or kosher one. The brining method removes any traces of blood.

    Hi, Alton. I hear lots of great things about brining turkey, and want to try it. I'd also love to try frying a turkey. Is it safe to brine a turkey I intend to fry? Sounds potentially hazardous… Thank you, and Happy Thanksviging!

    I put salt inside my turkey and rub it around so it draws the juices into the turkey. So my question is: Once the turkey is done is there a glaze I can put on the turkey that would create the same affect as baking a glaze on it.

    Hello:I am making a 3.8lb bone in, skin on turkey breast to take to Hospice for Mom and to have for lunch .(she doesn't tolerate spicey foods) I planning on putting herbed butter under skin ,and placing the breast on top of onions, oranges and lemmons. On the show you said 15min per pound at 350, is that the same for breast wiht skin and bone in. Thanks for your help I really want to make this dinner a dinner to put a smile on her face. Thanks again, Marsha PS Giada where in Michigan is Tod from.

    I too was disappoinnted with the show. It was way to fast paced. Alton was running around like a turkey with its head cut off. After being 20 min. into the show I looked at the clock and thought to myself how boring and uninformational this program is. 10 minutes later I realized it was a 2 hour show and turned the t.v. off because I wasn't about to watch another 1 1/2 hour of torture. Although I must say, it was a great concept but poorly executed.

    • shawn says:

      I agree, but I watched it because it was fun to watch Alton act like a spaz.

    • BeeJay says:

      I agree the pace was too frenetic for my taste.

    • Joe Jones says:

      When do you get anything out of tv but five minutes of bullshit and 3 minutes of commercials. I quit watching tv 12 years ago and if I was an adult I would be ashamed to say I sit and watch nonsense like this. They put just enough shit on so you'll watch the commercials.
      You get nothing from tv and never will. I mean they're just cooking food. If they were making a rocket ship I could see.
