I have elderly relatives and every year I go over their place. I thought it would be cool if this year different I invited them to come over to my place.

I'm at grocery store and I am immediately confused. There are different brands of turkeys?

So what makes one brand better than the other? Does one brand get fed kick-ass turkey food while the other does not?

How about when I go to the deli and get a half pound sliced extra thin ~ there doesn't appear to be any brand distinction there.

I think sliced turkey has a brand, but your grocery store probably has one brand that they feature.

Ok I can see that.

Now what is the difference between a "Walmart" and a name brand turkey?

Traditionally the more expensive the turkey (I mean Butterball etc) the tastier the bird.  Ive cooked many o fine turkey with the generic brands though.

1.  Brine the turkey over nite.  (let soak in salt water)

2.  Rub down turkey with a stick of butter or two then salt and pepper.

3.  Cook turkey slowly overnite at around 275 then early morning turn turkey up to 350.


This year, Im deep frying again.  Its expensive but it cooks a turkey in an hour or so.

One comes from Wal*Mart and the other does not.

I prefer ham at Thanksgiving. Taste of pig > taste of turkey.

Ports is spot-on with the fryer.  The bird comes out with crisper skin and juicy.  Ovens tend to dry birds out, even a little. 

Ports, how many people do you have attending your bash?  We get a 15 lb. turkey and I think it fries in about 20 minutes or so.

Hoping for 25-30.  Making dead pig too, I just dont eat it.
