BEN AND KATE

Patrick Ecclesine/FOX

Thanksgiving is almost upon us! A week from today, you'll all be sitting around a table, eating lots of good food and making awkward small talk with relatives.

To help kick off the turkey-eating season, we've got an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at Ben and Kate's Thanksgiving episode, which features one of the biggest turkeys we have ever laid eyes on. And poor Nat Faxon was the one who had to get real close with the giant bird.

"If you don't lock those wings down, they're like flapping and jabbing at you," Faxon warns. "As an actor, [the turkey] was very giving and a really good listener."

"He didn't scratch people much. He's much better than a lot of the costars I work with," Echo Kellum adds.

To get the story behind why the turkey is in the hands of Ben, check out the sneak peek below!

Ben and Kate's Thanksiving episode airs next Tuesday on Fox.
