There are three ways to thaw your turkey safely — in the refrigerator, in cold water, or in the microwave oven. Keep the turkey in its original wrapper. Place it on a tray or in a pan to catch any juices that may leak.
For thawing in the refrigerator, allow about 24 hours for every 4 to 5 pounds. A thawed turkey can remain in the refrigerator for 1 to 2 days. If necessary, a turkey that has been properly thawed in the refrigerator may be refrozen.
