GARNER, N.C. — When Americans sit down at the Thanksgiving table, 88 percent of them will feast on turkey.

But making the perfect bird is an art form. Luckily, there's help for those lacking experience when it comes to the task of cooking the Thanksgiving turkey. If that task falls on you this year, there is help.

For over 30 years, Butterball has offered its Turkey Talk-Line, a toll-free hotline cooks can call to get answers to their turkey-related questions.
