(KTVI) – The Butterball Turkey-Talk Line is now open ahead of Thanksgiving dinner.

The Butterball brand has been a staple of Thanksgiving for 40 years. Its chat line has been open since 1981 giving advice and tips on how to cook the perfect turkey. The line started as only phone, but now includes text, online chat, social media, and Amazon Alexa.

“We’re back in our 40th year to help new and seasoned hosts take the guesswork out of cooking turkey. This year we are focused on helping new and returning hosts, so they have more time to spend enjoying special moments with friends and family,” director and 21-year veteran of the Butterball Turkey Talk-Line Nicole Johnson said. “From phone calls to text messages to social media and Tik Tok, we continue to evolve to be there for hosts however they want to reach us and give them the confidence they need to pull off a successful Thanksgiving.”
