Getting ready for your holiday meals

Posted: Updated:
ATLANTA -

Tim Thompson, also known as Tipman Tim, is with Good day Atlanta all week to help us gear up for the holiday season.

For Monday, we start with making sure you don't over or under cook that big holiday meal, or any meal. The key is to check your thermometer.

Tips:

1. Test thermometer - put in boling water, should read 210 degrees
2. Don't trust oven thermometer
3. Hang thermometer in oven
4. Replace damaged ovens
5. Change direction of room fans so hot air is forced down.
