The second T refers to temperature, Butterball says that when cooking the turkey, it should reach 180° F in the thigh, 170° F in the breast and 165° F in the center of the stuffing. Next comes Butterball’s two-hour rule, which means that you should store leftovers in separate containers within two hours after cooking. And lastly, Butterball says you have three days to eat or freeze leftover turkey.
