Wondering if anyone has seen this on menus in the area or available for purchase to cook at home. I believe it's the time of year for it. TIA!

      Oddly enough, it was on the menu at Gargoyles several years ago. It got some good reviews, but I didn't think it was very good.

        I saw them at Butcher Boy (http://www.butcherboymarket.com/) in North Andover last week.

            I saw it in Woburn WholeFoods last year. Call them up and ask if they have it now.

                If you order in advance, Mayflower Poultry will debone poultry -- mostly chicken, but they will make a turducken and I believe in recent years have made a few to sell around the holidays. I believe they will also partially debone rabbit. I don't know if they do the stuffing for the ones they pre-made, though. It may not be for everyone, but deboning is a lot easier than you think and a skill well worth learning.

                  I think it can be rather tricky to cook.. that's a LOT of protein to bring up to temperature, and trying to keep the outside from overcooking and drying out must be hard..

                    I think McKinnon's Meat Market in Danvers sells it.

                      Didn't realize that I responded to a really old post so thought I would repost to a current query here. I just purchased a ready to bake Turducken at Star Market in Allston/Brighton. They're averaging ~$20-$30. The brand is Shaw's so I'm not sure how authentic this is but thought I'd give it a try!
