Survey: More men helping prepare Thanksgiving dinner

Created: 11/12/2013 7:03 AM WHEC.com

A new survey is showing that a growing number of men are doing more than just gobbling turkey when it comes to Thanksgiving dinner.
According to the Butterball survey, one in four men say they assist more in the kitchen than they did a few years ago and that nearly half of men play a significant role in either preparing or cooking the turkey. The survey also shows that 84-percent are involved in some aspect of preparing the Thanksgiving meal.  
As a result of the shifting demographics, Butterball is adding male staffers to its annual turkey talk-line which provides answers to all turkey questions. You can reach the hotline by calling 1-800-BUTTERBALL.
