  1. Hi Bianca!
    This was just what I was looking for, but I didn't expect to learn it from an old friend!
    Happy Thanksgiving!

  2. Thanks. Very clear and easy to follow, other than you forgot to say what length of string to cut to start with. I guessed 6 ft which I made work for the 17.5 lb bird, but 7 ft would have been easier for doing the final knot.

  3. Trussing freaks me out and is so frustrating to me. Its the most frustrating part of the entire cook for me.

  4. I can’t tell you how much I appreciate your easy to follow video. I was at my wits end trying to figure out how to tuck the wings under the backside of the turkey. I just could not do it. I am a very good cook and have no trouble following recipes but I could not find a video that showed specifically how to tuck the wings. Your video showed how to
    truss it with one action. You, or whoever invented this method- just made it simple. Thank you!!

  5. I just watched a ton of trussing videos & this one is my absolute fave with a beautiful look to it. There is some funky ways out there to truss a turkey! Lol!!????

  6. This is a much easier way than the way I used to do it. I wasted many hours trussing a turkey, because I thought it meant becoming friends with it first.

  7. Iam a chef and i liked the simple aproach. Great video!! Cooking should be fun and easy for everyone.
