Thanksgiving is coming up, and the turkey hot line is officially open. The Butterball Turkey Talk-Line is a free call-in hot line staffed by expertly trained operators.

In nearly 30 years, some of the questions stand out.

One caller asked what to do if their turkey was on fire.

Another was in a panic when his turkey was too big for the oven. He wrapped it in a towel, took it outside and stomped on it to break a few bones.

If you need a little help, the Butterball Turkey Talk-Line number is open through December at (800) BUTTERBALL or (800) 288-8372.
