    Default Cost Of Turkey This Year/Prefer Fresh Or Frozen?


    We just brought home our FREE 16 lb. frozen turkey for Thanksgiving.
    I've been saving up the super saving's coupons at Superbear Supermarket,
    and had exactly 16, which I could use one coupon for each lb. turkey.
    They are advertising fresh turkeys for $1.69 a lb. (whew!) and then
    regular price, without any coupons is 90 a lb., but for so many
    dollars spent at Fred Meyer, one can get a turkey for 69 a lb. if
    spend $100 in other items and 89 if spend $50 and free if spend up to
    $150, which doesn't take much now days.

    I'd heard the price would be more this year, but I don't think it is
    here, if memory serves me correctly?

    I know some say they prefer fresh turkey over the frozen, but I've had
    both and honestly, I don't see any difference.

    For sure we can't go out and hunt our own wild turkey, as they don't do
    well here. and no doubt it's too wet and too cold.

    For me it's the additives in the less expensive turkeys. I do not want
    a turkey that's been injected with "solutions" or has had industrial
    fats squirted under its skin.

    I'll pay more for a naturally processed (not organic) bird to avoid the
    laboratory.

    Me, too, except for pre brining, which I normally do at home. This year
    I'm buying pre brined birds raised naturally instead.

    My wife always gets fresh turkeys for special meals. I sure notice a
    difference. Most people I know who hat shot and cooked wild turkeys
    were not impressed with the meat. It usually ends up in stew or soup.

    Whole frozen turkeys were 69 cents a pound at Kroger. Frozen turkey
    breast was $1.19 per pound.

    I agree. Wild anything is not the same as farm raised.
    Your wild turkey will be lean and gamey tasting.
    Nothing wrong with that but much different than a grocery store turkey.

    Do they raise the turkeys in the ocean?

    I watched the Thanksgiving Live special on the Food Network this weekend
    and they showed various turkeys for comparison. The wild ones were very
    boney. I guess you have to have the ones raised for cooking to get all
    the meat. I've never tasted a wild one, so I have nothing to compare
    the taste to.
