PHOENIX — Thanksgiving dinner is supposed to be about time with your family and eating a tasty meal. Usually Thanksgiving comes with stress and that stress leads to cooking disasters no matter how many times you have prepared Thanksgiving dinner or if it's your first time. You don't have to freak out that because there are hotlines you can call when you are in stuck in a turkey disaster!


You can call 800-288-8372 or I-800-BUTTERBALL, text them at 844-877-3456, email them at, or ask your Amazon Alexa all for advice. The idea is that you can ask someone for tips, prevention or help after the fact of a turkey cooking incident without the freak out.
