General safety:

  • Stay in the kitchen to monitor stovetop foods
  • Stay in the home to monitor the turkey
  • Keep kids out of the cooking and serving area, or any place that will have hot surfaces, hot food items, knives, or dangerous cooking items
  • Check all your smoke alarms

Cooking safety:

  • You're dealing with raw poultry, so keep everything extra clean
  • You know what doesn't mix with raw poultry?  Vegetables.  Keep them separate
  • Cook your turkey to 165 degrees.  No exceptions
  • Don't leave food out in the danger zone (40-140 degrees Fahrenheit) for over 2 hours 
  • Put your leftovers in the fridge immediately
