Or is it too early to do so?

I have a 5kg turkey and its claiming it will take 20hrs to defrost, that's the whole bird so maybe you're jumping the gun a bit! smile

I'm taking mine out Tues morning as instructed by the butcher.

I'm taking mine out around lunchtime Tuesday to prepare on Wednesday night.

QueenFuri, what are you doing to it to prepare it? I was going to bung it in the oven with some butter and lemon and orange zest.

No, not unless you want it to poison everyone.

Tuesday night should be fine. It will be full defrosted wed night and won't cook until Thursday

When you say defrost do you still mean in the fridge? Or out on the side in kitchen never bought frozen before

Defrost in the fridge.

I just cover in butter, salt, pepper and streaky bacon them cover in foil and put back in the fridge, I take it out the fridge about half an hour before I start cooking it though.
