For more than 40 years, the professionally trained turkey experts that make up the Turkey Talk-Line have been answering turkey-related questions each holiday season. Open every November and December, our 50+ experts answer more than 100,000 questions, for thousands of households around the United States and Canada.
Let’s talk turkey! Our Butterball experts have adapted to the needs of the modern holiday cook. They’re available to answer your questions by phone, text, online chat, email, the Butterball Skill for Amazon Alexa, Facebook, Instagram and—new in 2021 —TikTok! The Turkey Talk-Line also has Spanish-speaking experts available for assistance.
It all began in 1981 when six home economists worked the phones that holiday season to answer 11,000 turkey-cooking questions. Since then the Turkey Talk-Line has grown in both the number of calls answered and experts responding.
From late night talk show hosts to top news publications, our Butterball Turkey Talk-Line experts' advice is shared both far and wide, helping hosts feel confident in the kitchen and pull off a successful Thanksgiving year after year.
