A few days ago there was a posting regarding finding a place that sells deep fried turkeys...Jive in Brooklyn was mentioned. Any other suggestions or can anyone recommend a place I can order a deep fried turkey online? Jives reviews were mixed.... and I would love suggestions.

    i've had the turkey from jive and have to say that it was absolutely delicious. moist, flavorful, crispy fried skin. all in all a homerun. the sides were great too.
    it's also the only fried turkey that i know of in nyc
    good luck...

      Since posting this, I believe Jive it's going to be! Thank you for your review!

        if you want to try Cajun fried turkey, you can get it from Popeye's Chicken.
        If you go to their website and click on the store locator, it will show the locations of the Popeyes chains and the ones that have the fried turkeys.
        I talked to one of the employees at one store and he said I should call a couple of days before and they will have it ready for pick-up. I think they sell for about $30 which is reasonable compared to Jive Turkey's $65-70

          really?
          from popeye's?
          not to sound too elitist, but is it edible?

              i hate to admit it, but YES. it is actually pretty good! it is probably the only time of year i'd go to a fast food place, specifically for this offer. give it a shot
