Ingredients | Prepare | Cooking | Other Meats | Safety | Tips
Stuffing is a side dish commonly associated with turkey and Thanksgiving but it can also be enjoyed throughout the year and with many types of meat.
The proper cooking time and the correct cooking temperature are extremely important when preparing any type of poultry. The optimum flavor and tenderness of turkey, chicken, duck, or any other type of poultry can be consistently achieved when care is taken to follow the recommended cooking time and temperature guidelines.
Grilling Tips for Poultry
Understanding the two most popular grilling styles, Direct and Indirect, is
essential to creating a perfect grilled entrée. There are instances when both
Direct and Indirect methods are appropriate.
Today's trend is to cook stuffing separately from turkey, the reason being safety and speed. Stuffing must reach a temperature of 165º F to kill harmful bacteria. By the time enough heat has reached the stuffing to render it safe, the turkey can be overcooked.
