How long can I keep an uncooked turkey in the fridge before roasting?

I bought one Sunday at the supermarket (yesterday) and wanted to make sure it keeps in the fridge till Thursday. As a vegetarian (cooking for others) I have zero experience with meat.

I would also recommend Alton Brown's method which starts several days ahead, spatchcocked in the fridge.

Hi Sim -- it should keep if you use a dry brine method, in which you salt the turkey 3 days ahead of time and store it in the fridge. I'd recommend this one, a Genius Recipe: https://food52.com/recipes/15069-russ-parsons-dry-brined-turkey-a-k-a-the-judy-bird. Happy holidays!
