Who needs cookbooks when you've got YouTube?

Certainly not Twilight stud Kellan Lutz, who told Jay Leno about his Thanksgiving cooking follies in an appearance on the Tonight Show Tuesday.
The hunky actor told Leno he spent the holiday with his father in Valencia, California for "a nice transitional family Thanksgiving.
"I actually helped cook a turkey, and none of us know how to cook a turkey, so we looked it up on YouTube," Lutz told Leno, conceding that they started watching the video halfway through the cooking process, and didn't realize you need to put foil atop the turkey to keep it from burning.
"Next year, we're gonna make a good turkey," Lutz said.
Apparently the feast couldn't have been too bad, as the handsome 25-year-old Tweeted following his meal Thursday: “I love Traditions. Comatose time. Thx Turkey."
