Anyone know where I can find whole smoked wild turkeys for the holidays?
I have an important client visiting us over the holidays and he has previously mentioned a love for smoked wild turkey. I've been scouring the web, but have been unable to find anyone selling whole smoked WILD turkeys. Any suggestions out there?
I wish you luck with that quest (in fact, please let us know if you succeed). Frankly, I'd be happy just to be able to get a fresh wild turkey at all. Once I did, however, I don't think I'd obscure it's flavor with smoking. If you're really desperate, send me two birds, I'll smoke one for you and send it back!
Lots of wild turkeys on the outskirts of Eugene, darn things make a big mess. Noway would I eat one of these though, tough, bad tasting birds.
Hell, I thought you were talking daybreak in the woods, "watch out for the buckshot, y'all" wild turkey. If a smoked, free range, farm raised bird is ok? There is a farm by us at the Shore that might do one. I know they do a smoked turkey "ham." In fact, I'd actually call them and ask as they may be willing to go "off the menu" for you.
And in the UK:
BTW - Thanks for the other links!
Where I live a Wild Turkey is a game bird...Get caught selling it they will put you under the jail and forget you are there.........
I see from your links however that you have found the domestic Farmed Raised, Free Range, Organically Grown, etc. Faux "Wild" Turkeys....
Have Fun & Enjoy!!
