How Do You Like Your Bird?

Thanksgiving usually revolves around a bunch of different traditions for different people. For some, it's sportsball. For others, parades. For others, a Settlers of Catan marathon! And even though eating turkey is probably the most common tradition of all, there are a ton of ways this feast meal can show up on your plate (not all of them good, as we've unfortunately learned - sorry, grandma).

So whether you'll be doing the cooking or the eating this Thanksgiving, we're guessing you have some thoughts about what makes the perfect Thanksgiving turkey.

We want to know: which aspect of cooking or preparation is the most important to you when it comes to "the bird?" Oven temperature? Seasoning? Flipping it?

Choose one from our list, or let us know in the "Other" field if it's something else! We'll be adding up all the votes to see if there's something new we need to try this year.

And, if you're not celebrating Thanksgiving, or not into eating turkey at all, let us know about one of your traditional meals (for any special occasion) in the comments!

Because there's one thing we can all agree on: no matter what you eat, when you get together with friends and/or family and chow down, it's a wonderful thing.

meaningless icon! There are so many good ways to cook a turkey, but my favorite will always be simply roasting it in the oven with stuffing and basting it in it's own juices. Reminds me of my childhood, spending Holidays at Grandma's house. :)

meaningless icon! we brine and high roast our turkey, unstuffed, at 500 degrees and it comes out moist, juicy, and tender, even the breast meat. we have to clean the oven before doing this or the turkey would taste like it was smoked in a house fire. good enough reason to clean the oven, the turkey is the best i have tasted, the fat renders off the skin, the skin is thin and super crispy. also there is no basting required. we all fight over the skin because it is so damned delicious.

meaningless icon! I stuff mine with onions, insert bacon between the skin and breast and wrap turkey with bacon, add white wine to the roasting pan. No basting and the dripping with the white wine make an amazing gravy with a thickening agent. any leftovers are served as a sandwich with avocado

meaningless icon! Hate to say it but Martha Stewart's recipe is what we use. We make Great-Grandma's stuffing and then soak a cheesecloth in butter, broth, seasoning, and white wine and put that over the turkey. Very moist with awesome looking skin.
