Do you use a "Turkey Lifter" - looks like string? AND yet another question about thawing...

  • Do you use a "Turkey Lifter" - looks like string? AND yet another question about thawing...
    I saw this on the Butterball website.

    Also, I'm going to need about 10 pounds thawed over night. The Butterball website says to change the water every 30 minutes. Some have said every 2 hours. Others have said they let it sit all night without changing the water. I don't know what to do with my first turkey.

    I was thinking about getting it in the sink at midnight and letting it sit for 5 to 6 hours. Then start with it around 8 am.

    I guess another question is, once it is thawed, do you place it back into the refrigerator until you're ready to start with it? That seems obvious to me, or are you supposed to start cooking it right away?

    Thanks :)

    I got a 20 pounder and it will have set in the refrigerator for 2 and a half days. That's where I come up with about 10 pounds left to thaw. Is this correct?

    I feel like such a rookie.
