Whether you dropped your Butterball turkey on the floor or don’t know how long to cook it for, the smart folks over at Butterball have set up a hotline, aptly called the Butterball Turkey Talk-Line so you can ask all your emergency turkey questions. Think of it as the 911 for turkey.
Butterball Turkey Talk-Line
The hotline is available in English and Spanish from 9 am 9 pm weekdays through Dec. 23; 9 am 7 pm weekends before Thanksgiving; and 7 am 7 pm on Thanksgiving Day. You can also send the Butterball experts a message, specifying your preferred method of contact (email, phone, mail) or send them a tweet (a gobble?).
If you get a busy signal, don’t fret. Butterball isn’t the only turkey emergency phone line you can call. For a complete list of turkey hotline numbers, visit Stacie’s post on “Talking Turkey: Emergency Hotlines.”
