Sous Vide Turkey

Overcooked, bland, and dried out turkey is very common around homes. With practice it is possible to cook turkey perfectly using traditional methods but it is always a fine line between perfect and overcooked. Using sous vide turkey always results in uniformly tender turkey that is very moist.

The FDA states that turkey is safe when it is held at 136°F / 58°C for over 63 minutes, or 140°F / 60°C for over 30 minutes. This is very easy to do with sous vide and almost impossible to do with traditional methods.

However, even though it is possible to cook sous vide turkey at temperatures below 140°F / 60°C we have found that the texture is very different and tastes "raw". To avoid this we recommend turkey breasts cooked at 140°F / 60°C to 147°F / 63.8°C for 1 to 4 hours and legs or thighs cooked at 147°F / 63.8°C for 4 to 8 hours.
