Traditions abound at Thanksgiving—and each family has its own. For some, Thanksgiving dinner isn’t complete without grandma’s secret gravy recipe. For others, it’s the green bean casserole or the pecan pie. For others, it’s the tradition of Dad carving the turkey at the head of the table, or all the children reciting the things for which they are thankful.
But one thing is certain—nearly every Thanksgiving dinner centers around a big, juicy, golden brown, roasted-to-perfection turkey. That’s why we’ve put together this A to Z guide of how to select, prepare, and serve your Thanksgiving turkey.
This year, let us help you treat your family to the juiciest, freshest, most natural and wholesome turkey available anywhere—a fresh All-Natural Thanksgiving Turkey from Lobel’s of New York.
It’ll truly be your most memorable Thanksgiving yet.

Let us take you for a moment to your kitchen on Thanksgiving morning. Picture it: You’re busy in the kitchen. The menu is set and preparations are underway: turkey, potatoes, stuffing, vegetables… you’re peeling, seasoning, mixing, measuring… and in the midst of all this, your family sits down to a hearty breakfast of eggs, potatoes, bacon, and French toast. It fuels you up and powers you through the morning so that you can get the holiday dinner on the table in spectacular fashion and with a smile on your face.
Sound impossible? It’s not!
With just a little bit of pre-planning, you can have a delicious breakfast that will tide your family over as they wait for the main event. These make-ahead dishes are assembled the night before. One goes in the slow-cooker overnight, while the other gets popped in the oven first thing in the morning. Just add juice and coffee, and you’ll get Thanksgiving Day off to a great start!

And while less traditional pies such as chocolate, coconut cream, blueberry, raspberry, and lemon chiffon—even cheesecake and crostada—are enjoyed on Thanksgiving, four traditional standards still take center-stage when it comes to Thanksgiving desserts: pumpkin, apple, mincemeat, and pecan.

Nowadays, you can cook a turkey just about any way you want. We have the technology and equipment readily at our disposal, from traditional roasting—radiant or convection—to smoking, deep-frying, and even boiling.

As a side benefit, your home will fill with the signature aromas of our annual Thanksgiving traditions.
