(FOX 56) – Cooking an iconic Thanksgiving turkey is oftentimes not for the faint of heart.

Balancing the ingredients, cook-time, and temperature can really ruffle the feathers of those tasked with taking on the big bird.

Thankfully, when Thanksgiving home chefs have any questions, comments, or concerns regarding cooking Turkey, the Butterball Turkey Talk-Line is open.

The service began in 1981 with six turkey experts manning the lines. They answered nearly 11,000 questions that year.

Now, 40 years later, the Turkey Talk-Line boasts a panel of 50+ experts who will tend to more than 100,000 turkey inquiries this holiday season.

No task is too large or abnormal for the Turkey Talk-Line.

During their 40 year tenure, they have heard everything under the sun relating to the preparation of turkey. Here are some of the most interesting they have faced over the years:

  • “Can I thaw my turkey in the toilet?”
  • “How can I thaw my turkey on my car luggage rack?”
  • “Can I cook a 30-year-old turkey?”
  • “How did the meat disappear from my turkey?”
  • “Will chainsaw oil affect my turkey roast?”
