Burning Question: At What Temperature Is a Turkey Cooked?

Who's got a great way to skim the fat off a hot meat-based stew-type dish before serving?

Stale bread is good for lifting off hot fat as well.

Good call. I wonder if a baster would work for skimming as well? http://www.amazon.com/Tovolo-80-11001P-Clear-Dripless-Baster/dp/B000SOU0EY/ref=pd_sim_k_1

I usually just get a big spoon and remove what I can. And I imagine something like this might help to in a pinch.

thanks! One of my friends recommended that too....although I'm wondering if there's a quick-ish way to get it while it's hot if you want to eat it at the moment. I was chasing down these little grease blobs for forever and of course I barely got any of it...

The fat rises to the top, but it can be difficult to spot and elusive to remove, so refrigerate the stew, and the fat will be super easy to scrape off. You'll be left with a virtually fat-free stew!
