Food Safety re: transporting a Thanksgiving partly cooked turkey
We have never done this before: brought a turkey. My son and daughter in law are hosting Thanksgiving - held THIS Saturday (because he is working on Thanksgiving and all that weekend). It will be at their place because they have a 17 month old toddler who gets car sick.
My husband and I are making the turkey. WE have to cook it,. no one else can. Plan is to cook it partly at our house and then finish it there. But I have no idea if that is safe or not. They live an hour away.
Or are we better off cooking it fully then reheating it there? If so, how do we keep a juicy, non-dry bird?
The turkey is 14 pounds, purchased today, frozen, now thawing in our fridge.
I have a Chef Alarm temperature probe I will use for the initial cooking, and bring with too. I also have an instant read thermometer I use to double check. The combo worked great last year to produce a perfect turkey.
Thanks for your help.
