Leg wiggling, juice color, even the aroma – you’ll hear lots of ways to check the doneness of your turkey at Thanksgiving. But there’s only one way to be sure: the temperature.
How? You'll need a meat thermometer to make sure you cook your turkey to the right temperature. Insert it close to, but not touching, the thigh bone. If it reads 180 degrees F in the thigh and 170 degrees F in the breast, it's done and ready to serve. (If it’s stuffed, check the center of the stuffing to make sure it’s 165 degrees F as well.)
