“Now a 20 pound turkey could take three and a half to four and a half days in the fridge [to thaw]’ he said in a video he shared on TikTok.

“I’ll show you how to do it in a few hours.

“The secret is to put it in ice water,” he continued.

Jason explained that water “transfers heat much more efficiently than air,” and as long as you keep the water close to 40 degrees Fahrenheit, the process will work.

He said it should take about 30 minutes to thaw each pound of meat, so a 20-pound turkey only takes about 10 hours.

He ran a direct comparison of his hack to the traditional method of defrosting refrigerators.

“After the same amount of time, was this 20-pound frozen turkey that was in the fridge still frozen while it was in the water?

“Thawed and ready to go,” he confirmed.


If you’ve got the defrosting done but need tips on cooking the bird, there’s plenty of advice on the internet.

A cooking guru revealed three tricks to get a juicy and flavorful turkey.

First, she said to soak it in well-seasoned water overnight.

Then she advised to cook it in a bag.

“Bake your turkey breast-side down and in the last 45 minutes you’ll turn it over [and] Open the bag so that [skin] on the chest gets a nice tan because we want our bird to tan,” she said.

Finally, she said it was imperative to let the turkey sit for 45 minutes before carving it.
