Q:Can I refreeze my thawed turkey?
A: From a quality standpoint, I wouldn't recommend it—every time you freeze and defrost meat, you damage its structure more and more. From a safety standpoint, thawed meat should only be refrozen once. After that, you run a more serious risk that bacterial contamination is building up to unsafe levels.
