As of Tuesday (November 1), the Butterball Turkey-Talk Line is now officially open for the holiday season. The company is celebrating 40+ years of helping holiday hosts cook the perfect turkey.

Since its first season in November 1981, the Butterball Turkey Talk-Line has helped almost 50 million consumers. When should you thaw your turkey? How do you safely stuff a turkey? At what temperature should you cook your turkey? Well, those are just a few examples of questions that the retail and food service company can help answer for you.

The Butterball Turkey Talk-Line experts are standing by to help now through December 24 by calling 1-800-BUTTERBALL, social media, Amazon Alexa, website, and via e-mail. The company is even offering extended hours the week of Thanksgiving.

“The holiday season can be one of the most exciting times of year, but unfortunately, it can also be one of the most stressful,” said Nicole Johnson, director and 22-year veteran of the Butterball Turkey Talk-Line stated in a press release. “We’ve harnessed more than 40 years of Turkey Talk-Line expertise – the most common questions and sources of confusion as well as the angst that frequently accompanies them – to create this daily resource for often-overlooked holiday hosts.  Particularly as they grapple with inflation and other concerns, it’s an honor to offer our time-tested technical advice, emotional support and even a little levity in this fun, new format this holiday season.”
