To celebrate the fact that Thanksgiving is almost upon us, the Food Network (@FoodNetwork) is giving fans a chance to ask questions, connect with their favorite chefs and each other.

Throughout next Sunday’s (Nov. 18) two-hour live show, Alton Brown (@altonbrown) is encouraging viewers to tweet their cooking questions using the hashtag #ThanksgivingLive. There will also be several polls throughout the show asking Thanksgiving-related questions, and @FoodNetwork will embed a Livestream feed into its Twitter account. To add to the fun, Food Network chefs will be answering throughout the day to answer Twitter questions from eager (and busy) cooks at home.
