On Thanksgiving Day, Watch a Turkey Cooking from Start to Finish on FoodNetwork.com

Watch a turkey cook from start-to-finish on Thanksgiving Day -- plan on five hours of turkey goodness.

This Thanksgiving, our turkey-day plans will look a lot like yours — we’re putting the bird in the oven in the morning and waiting for it to get golden brown and juicy a few hours later.

And you can watch.

On Thanksgiving Day, for the first time in FoodNetwork.com history, we’ll be showing a turkey roasting, in real time, on our Thanksgiving Central page. The bird will go into the oven at 10 a.m. EST, and over the next few hours, you can watch it cook — it’s our version of the infamous Yule Log. Watch our turkey roast from start to finish as you cook yours at home, or keep checking FoodNetwork.com to see how the turkey is coming along.

In the meantime, you'll need this for your Thanksgiving prep:
