Where are you buying your Turkey this year?

Where do you guys usually buy your Turkey's? Is there a better place to buy Turkey's aside from the big chains like RCSS?

I'd like to purchase a Butterball this year instead of some no-name brand of Turkey since I've heard Butterball is miles ahead of any other brands of Turkey. Anyone have a better suggestion or do you guys recommend Butterball as well?

Would you buy the Butterball WITH stuffing or WITHOUT? Any good deals for Butterball around this time of year?

JD Turkey farm out in langley.. their turkey is not frozen and plenty of sizes to choose from.

The meat shop on 4th across from Safeway always carries them.

The cost about 4x a typical Superstore/ Butterball etc turkey though.

For a simple receipe:

1. Get a huge stock pot that fits your turkey
2. 5 spice, bay leave, salt, cinnamon, sugar, pepper, clove, anise (basically any spice you have in your cupboard), grind them all up.
3. Okanagan Apple cider (you probably need 3 pop sized bottles).. from the glog shop.
4. Oranges
5. Turkey bag (available from Ming Wu).

1. Cook the cider and spice so it is all dissolved.. (leave some of the spices for final seasoning)
2. Stuff the interior with oranges
3. Fill the bag with turkey, cider and ice (to be marinate for 48 hours). Put some ice in the cavity first, before pouring the warm cider in.
4. Pat the turkey dry. use the spice to finish the interior (this absorbs the moisture in the inside cavity to make it crisp).
5. Once dry, fill the cavity with stuffing, the one JD sells is really good.. and one pack is more than enough. I mix some cognac fused dry cranberries in for extra festive touch.
6. Cook at 350C-450C (turn on high temp, and lower temperature as you go). Use a wired oven thermoeter digital one is about 10 bucks at Superstore.
7. Leftover bones can be used made into soup stock etc.

The reason besides the feed is they dont freeze it... freezing really changes the texture (not to mention lengthen the prep time).

If you are saving money, pick the size you least need and pick only utility turkeys.. Utility and Grade A are \the same turkey, but what happens is utility turkeys have some accidents happened to them during the defeather/cutting process eg torn skin, missing the gullets / necks etc.. for me, I always pick utility turkey.

FYI..

Walmart has regular turkeys, Lilydale brands that are grain fed for .79cents a pound, versus Safeway's 1.49/pound I believe, for the same brand.


As for butterballs, I tried one long time ago, It was definitely moist (Moreso), wonder how much butter they smear all over it.

..........


Or...TURDUCKEN..........cover it in bacon.
