        best chicken ive ever had, super super juicy- and they arrive super clean BUT- expensive

        1. re: shoelace

          For the same price of a raw Grow and Behold, you can get a fully smoked turkey from here: http://up-in-smoke-kosher-texas-bbq.m...

          btw, to answer your question, yes, they are $2.49/lb. And they are in stores (they started carrying them on 11/17)

            With all due respect to Wandering Que & Ari, whom I respect greatly (to wit, I have taken his BBQ class AND used him to cater a kiddush), you aren't really comparing apples to apples.

              though i am also a huge ari follower, im not a huge fan of smoked turkey- i did think about ordering from him, but the thought of having turkey other than my moms put my nieces and nephews into a bit of a panic

              as a side note, grow and behold is definitely worth the money- that being said, you still have to be able to afford it, but the quality is incredible

        2. re: Moishefrompardes

          i am a big grow and behold fan, and have purchased chickens and sausages from them multiple size

          that being said, we go through 2 15lb turkeys, plus a ton of other meat stuff- i cant afford to do that through grow and behold

        3. According to Trader Joe's they will be having them again and they are $2.49/lb. Not sure if they are in stores yet, your best bet is to call your local store and ask (the ones I have been to in NYC in recent years have sold out quickly some days).

            Most major supermarkets will match competitor's prices. Stop and Shop here will honor the Trader Joe's price

              only if its in a printed advertisement, in my experience

            2. re: EllieS

              I was in the Trader Joe's at 72nd and Broadway last night, and they had kosher turkeys. They were definitely $2-something/pound, but I am not in the market for one, and didn't look closely.

              1. re: GilaB

                2 something a lb is a close enough guess, specially bc its manhattan, which means, when they come in, queens/long island, will be the same price or less

              2. re: EllieS

                oh, i have, to a couple of different stores, they keep telling me, not to worry that theyll be in stock

                1. re: shoelace

                  Shoprite in West Orange & Livingston, NJ have the Empire at $3.29 a lb. if you spent $400 after Oct 20, you are supposed to get $1.49 off for the kosher Turkeys, bit it seemed they programmed the computers so that even the kosher ones were free.

              3. I went into Pomegranate in Brooklyn since they were advertising having turduckens. Since I was curious I went over to the meat counter and asked how much they are. The answer: a raw one is $350. I was afraid to find out how much a fully cooked one is. Makes the Grow and Behold one seems positively reasonable doesn't it?
