Something to contemplate in the kitchen today

November 22, 2007

Consider the following advice for cooking the perfect Thanksgiving turkey:

The final temperature of the bird, after “resting” for 15 to 20 minutes, should be at least but not much more than 165 degrees Fahrenheit. The temperature will continue to rise 5 to 10 degrees after the turkey is removed from the oven. []

Does this mean that turkeys violate Newton’s Law of Heating and Cooling?
