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.

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.
