I finally found someone to process my 3 turkey's ( not an easy thing in New Jersey) in exchange I am giving them one of the birds to eat. I want to eat it on Christmas, he may want to process tomorrow - 10 days before Christmas. Can I keep it in the refrigerator that long or will it have to be frozen? I know stores must have fresh turkeys around for a while but I want to be safe. Also how should I store it in the frig? I know it's supposed to rest for a few days. In a bag or in foil or in the roaster covered? What about the salt water soak? Do I leave it in the frig soaking? HOw, in what? HOw long? Help!
