Defrosting The Turkey In The Swimming Pool?

Happy Thanksgiving

Is it a good idea to defrost the turkey in the swimming pool?

If there are flaws in the wrapping turkey juices and the pool water would mix. Although this might not be a problem since you will bake the turkey for hours killing all bacteria and the chemicals in the water will take care of the pool. It is more important to worry about the temperature. You want to make sure you will keep the turkey at a safe temperature during defrosting. Hence we do not advise you to thaw the turkey in the pool!

Instead of putting the turkey in the pool, a better solution would be fridge-thawing for a few days or thawing it in a clean 5-gallon bucket of cold water.
