My favorite is the brand on sale, Jennio last week at 35 cents a pound, and whatever was buy one get one free a few weeks ago. I am now the proud owner of 3 turkeys and 1 breast. Good thing I didn't get enough turkey at Thanksgiving.
Not that there's anything wrong with that.....

Did you get to taste one of the birds that were so huge? Just curious if any flavor? Would many people buy this bird that was almost 100 lbs.? Learn something new everyday.

Well I'm officially even more in love with Diestel Farms. We ordered one called a "wide breasted" turkey for Thanksgiving this year. Apparently they've bred a certain line of turkeys to have more white meat than normal.

Man, they weren't kidding! The breasts on it were HUGE and it had about twice as much white meat as a comparably sized normal turkey.
