whole smoked turkey

I want to buy a whole smoked turkey for a party (not Thanksgiving) I will be giving at the end of November. Where in Toronto should I buy it? Preferably downtown, but absolutely not Scarboro, Mississauga, etcetera.

  1. Call DSM Foods 905-738-0611-caterers/brokers who supply lots of high end-grocers and restaurants (they provide Kaplansky's with pickles). Great products and they deliver. Have used them over 10 times and have never been disapointed.

    1. Viking on Laird.

      They also 'slice and reassemble' (additional cost) so you can just serve.

      I've been getting mine there for 15 years - and the carcass is the secret ingredient I use in my soups - make stock from it.

      1. I have seen them at Longos and, perhaps, Costco. They are from Brandts. You might want to give Brandts a call to see if they supply to any stores in your area.

        1. Nortown has been consistently excellent (though I haven't had one in a few years). You must order these in advance. The "smoked turkey" they sell in the stores is deli meat. These are whole birds, pre-carved and reassembled.

          1. Steeles Deli has a good one as well. They must be ordered in advance.
