Forgive me, but I'm new to this... We received a 33.8 oz turkey for Thanksgiving and I'm not sure exactly what to do with the thing. Details: Turkey processed on Friday, we received the turkey on Sunday. Our Thanksgiving is being held on the Saturday after Thanksgiving which is 13 days out. We stuck our boy in the freezer because he didn't exactly fit in the fridge very well and because we thought he wouldn't stay fresh for an additional 13 days. So....after reading, I found we should have left the turkey in the fridge for 3-4 days in order for the rigor mortis to relax?? Since that didn't happen, should we thaw him out a couple of days sooner and let him relax in the fridge or are we pretty much SOL and going to have a tough, stiff old bird? I'm used to cooking 23-25 lb birds, but this dinosaur is a going to be a bit of a challenge. So....this brings me to my final question....will he be tough? We will brine him for 24 hours. He is a young turkey, just BIG.
