Every year Butterball operators field desperate calls to their hotline from people perplexed by the Turkey cooking process. While most of their calls are probably of the standard “how long do I cook this bird for” variety, a few really stupid questions happen to slip through the phone lines. Here are your top 5 stupid questions asked on the Butterball Hotline according to Reuters.
  1. Is it okay to thaw my turkey in the bathtub while bathing my kids?
  2. Can I brine my turkey in the washing machine?
  3. Can I use my oven’s self-cleaning cycle to speed up the cooking process?
  4. If I cut my turkey with a chainsaw will the oil affect the taste?
  5. Can I take my frozen turkey into my sauna to thaw it faster?
