Before you cook or do anythign else with the turkey you need to remove the giblets, make sure if you are keeping them to put them in a clean seperate container and that you was down anyt hing they come into contact with throuhgly, including your hands!

When you cook the turkey you have to decide if you are going to cookj the stuffing inside the turkey or seperately. It is safer to cook it seperately as this then allows the heat inside the cavity in the turkey and help to cook it.
