After a little cheese cloth was dunked in butter and white wine and some wrestling to get the wing tips under the turkey so they wouldn't burn, Martha and Ferguson presented a magazine cover-worthy bird (get the recipe here).
But the fun didn't stop there. Ferguson stayed for the entire show (a feat we were told is unusual -- guests usually tape their segment and dash) and also made gravy (Martha promised to give him one of her gravy separators from her Macy's line), wielded a staple gun to make turn a piece of plywood and a few saw horses into a table to accommodate Thanksgiving guests, and glue gunned corn husks together to create a "gourd gobbler" table center piece.
