Thanksgiving: Cleaning Turkey - as part of the expert series by GeoBeats. Once your turkeys are frosted, you want to take it out of its container. You want to rinse it under some cold water. Make sure you take out the bag that is inside the cavity that has the neck and some other organs. Then you want to pat it dry. Season it with some salt and pepper generously on the inside as well as the outside, and then fill it with your favorite stuffing. The best thing to do to keep your turkey nice and moist is to put a light coating of canola oil or olive oil on the outside of the skin before you put it in the oven. It is very important that you do not stuff your turkey until right before you are ready to put it in the oven to prevent any kind of illness.
