pre-cooked turkey

I'm looking for a place to buy a turkey where they cook it for you, all you have to do is pick up . I know some of the Chinese places in Richmond do it...but which ones? Thanks in advance. I'm hosting dinner for my family for thanksgiving and I'm making a lot of stuff, so no room for the turkey!

+1

It's a complete rip to buy it cooked and I'm not even talking about double the money but way more. Like Skinny said if there's anything your making it should be the turkey.

my b-law's mom is a frequent roasty jacks customer so they offered to cook her the thanksgiving turkey last year.

you can always ask a specific location you're close to if they are willing to

I should mention I've never cooked a turkey before, don't want to mess up my first thanksgiving dinner when all my family is there. I will check out Parker Place or maybe I will attempt it

It's not hard to cook a turkey, it just takes a long time. Just be sure to get a Butterball, and you'll be fine

^ It's $70, not $50.

Believe me, the Safeway deal is a rip.

How hard is it to cook a turkey? Just stick a Meat Therometer in there. You can't fuck that up.

Why Butterball?

Note that margarine has been replaced with brine to cut down on the fat in the pan and make your turkey even more tender and juicy.

So, do I need to de-frost the bird first before I cook it? or can I throw all the ingredients together with the frozen turkey then rotisserie it?

Defrost first, give it some time as it will take a while.

Contrary to what you may think, the name "Butterball" has nothing to do with butter or margarine. It's just a brand that produces pre-brined turkeys that are VERY tender and delicious.

Even if they did "inject them with butter" that would be just another reason NOT to avoid it, as butter is very good for you, and makes everything taste delicious.

I'm not sure if those chinese BBQ places can do different styles. But my parents had them cook it one time and they used the roasted duck seasoning. And it was just wrong haha. I wasn't fan of the sweetness and you couldn't make any gravy from the drippings cause of the flavour.

Save-on has Butterball turkeys, but they only had a few sizes left...either too small or too big

Anyways, ended up getting a chinese place in Richmond Public market to cook the turkey for me...I'll try cooking it next year when I have more time

BTW, the Save-on at Ackroyd also says they can order in a turducken...I want to try that next year!

our family used a butterball last year for the first time.
they always do a great job cooking the turkey anyway, but the butterball cooked a lot faster and was super tender too.

I saw it at Pricesmart north road ( same as save-on?) and it was 80 bucks, only 10 or something lbs in total, but it was supposed to be mostly deboned, and it was also stuffed with cajun sausage meat, looked pretty amazing. I might go back to get one haha

From the Butterball.ca website product info on fresh whole turkey:

"Fresh turkeys have all the Butterball special features plus they are deep basted with a specially formulated margarine to make the breast meat tender and flavourful."

Thanksgiving dinner is not a difficult dinner, just requires lots of time and effort. It's just a lot of small simple dishes.

Last year I did a (brined myself) fresh local turkey, mashed potato/yams, Brussel sprouts on the vine, cooked peas & carrots.

I personally don't like "pre-basted" or "pre brined" or "pre-anything" turkey. It's not a whole lot of extra effort to do it yourself, and it's only something I do once a year anyways. Plus you know what you put into your food, not what some factory puts in.

Wow, the American version doesn't have that at all! And the frozen version doesn't either. Who would have thought that the Canadian version has the richer, tastier, healthier version!

By the way, their margarine is made from non-hydrogenated palm oil, which is naturally saturated and very good for you. It's probably the only margarine ever invented that isn't a disgusting slurry of toxic oil.

I wish I wrote down last two years ago turkey recipe... it was combination of an IPA, cajun spices, and some savory spices and was the best turkey I've ever eaten.

Last year's, we did on the bbq due a power outage. Boy that was fun!

This year, I'm considering deep frying... or maybe I'll just get lazy and make my famous turkey meatball meatball fettuccine with mushroom sauce.

Sounds good. But I'll admit I'd still rather baste the turkey myself with butter.
