I’ve got a little formula that predicts how long it will take for our Thanksgiving turkey to cook. It works really well for our temperatures and preparation, but I’d like to make it a little more general so everyone else can use it, regardless of temperature. As a wise man once said, if it’s worth doing, it’s worth overdoing, unless you’re overcooking turkey.
Towards that end, and because this is a science blog, I would like to perform a hypothesis-generating experiment. If you’re willing to further science, please share some details about how you prepared your turkey, and how it turned out. Humanity will thank you. Turkeys will not. I will post the results when I can, and maybe we can try again next year for a full prediction.
