Rubashkin's Aaron's Best Turkey

In the latest issue of Cook's Illustrated, there's an article on a turkey taste test. Rubashkin's Aaron's Best ended up in the Highly Recommended category. Does anyone know if they're available anywhere in the Bay Area?

        Yes it is, it goes fast though, it's a great turkey. Just ask them when thier coming in.

      2. OK, I am going there today to see if they have them and will keep you posted. I always bought Diestel (sp?) turkeys for years, but even after brining it last year, it wasn't to die for. I look forward to trying this turkey and especially look forward to not having to brine it!

          If by "there" you mean Trader Joe's, they don't regularly have whole turkeys -- they usually have turkey parts, and last year they had whole turkeys right at Thanksgiving (super cheap, too!). Actually, now that I think about it, you didn't mean you were going to buy your T-Day turkey today (obviously), just that you were going to check out the brand? If so, you could ask them if they're going to have whole turkeys this year, and when they're going to get them in.

        2. Linda,
          Fancy meeting you here! I was looking for the same turkey, it is rated #1 by Newsweek too. Have you found it yet? Trader Joe's?

            Trader Joe's has the Aaron's turkey half breasts on a regular basis. I asked last time I was in, and they said they're supposed to have the whole turkeys again this year, but probably only a few days before Thanksgiving. They'll also have "natural" turkeys this year -- whatever that means!

          2. Have you found any other stores that carry the famous Aaron's best turkey since you first posted?
