Sourcing Smoked Turkey Thigh

giacomantonia Nov 11, 2010 10:24 AM

I need to test a recipe which calls for a smoked turkey thigh. Any ideas where to find one in the East Bay? Thanks so much! ;o)

    Try Berkeley Bowl West in the cooler section near the milk or perhaps across from the meat counter.
    Of course a call might save you a trip.

      I've bought Willie Bird vacuum-sealed smoked turkey from Berkeley Bowl. They have breasts, legs and assorted I believe (I got the leg) It's usually near the cold cut deli section, in the trays in front of the glass case. Calling is a good idea unless you're already going.

        They've got drumsticks, they've got necks, they've got tails, they've got wings with drummettes but yes they have no bananas er, thighs.

      it's kind of far out for you, but Dittmer's in Mountain View has tons of smoked meats, including turkey. Don't recall if I've seen the thigh alone, but ask.
