Buying Turkey

I have promised my mom that I'd buy a turkey for Christmas.
I am not an expert at buying turkey. Can you guys recommend me a brand or a market where I can purchase a good quality turkey? I guess I should get free range, free blahh blahh kind. =)

  1. Trader Joe's has a very nice free range turkey--Key Food has nice butterballs

    1. Don't use a butterball. They're injected with chemicals and fat.
      Either get an Empire Kosher turkey that comes brined or go to Whole Foods
      and get a turkey and brine it yourself. It's worth the effort.
