Robert L. Wolke submits a Thanksgiving Day dilemma:
OMG! I forgot to defrost the turkey. It’s still in the freezer and my Thanksgiving guests will be arriving in six hours. I called my mother and all she did was LOL. Then she said, “Don’t worry. Just roast it without thawing it. I’ve been doing that for years.”
Wolke then describes exactly how a frozen bird cooks to tender perfection, without burning the skin.

And, yes, it’s really OK to eat some of that crispy turkey skin!
