Chris Kimball cooks — under close supervision.

When it comes to cooking large meals, experience is key. And few cooks have more experience than Chris Kimball, host of the PBS show America's Test Kitchen.

In a Thanksgiving tradition, Kimball shares his kitchen know-how with Renee Montagne and Steve Inskeep. And while this year's installment takes place at the Inskeep household, all the topics were suggested by e-mails from our audience.

We asked for your questions — everything home cooks puzzle over year after year at Thanksgiving. And from a great appetizer to using a thermometer, your answers have now arrived.
