Regardless of how you cook a Thankgiving Day turkey, experts say to make sure you let it sit, undisturbed, on a cutting board or platter for at least 30 minutes before carving. This allows the bird to finish cooking more gently and reabsorb all of its juices, producing moist meat. Cooked turkey and gravy can be kept for three or four days in the refrigerator, according to health experts.
