Didn't know a turkey came with peddles....(gotta love headlines)...
Gotta love liberals. Cry about a penny of budget cuts for the poor, but love to take your money with overpriced environmentally friendly crap.
I think mine cost a little over $20.00 at Walmart at 88 cents a lb.
It probably wasn’t spoiled with shelter, resting areas,sufficient space to engage in natural behavior, but it probably got beheaded and gutted the same way this spoiled one did.
Based on the price of the stuff they sell, that’s cheap. I’ve seen Cisco equipment that costs more than my house.
wow that’s even more expensive than the whole kosher goose that my local store carries
actually peddles is the correct word
as in to offer for sale or barter
pedal would not have been the right word
Where are the libs to complain these turkerys lived a better life than the ‘ poor”
My niece’s boyfriend shot a 17-pound wild turkey for our Thanksgiving. I can’t speak for the cost, it depends on the value of your time and how you depreciate your guns.
We’ll see how the taste compares with these expensive deluxe mail-order birds.
I get mine from one of my neighbors who raises enough chickens and regular brown turkeys for their own use and to sell to neighbors for about 1/2 as much as the supermarket in the city. They sell brown eggs, too-and everything is free range, organic and drug-free without that fancy price. The birds don’t come all prepared and wrapped in plastic, but the color and flavor of the meat is great-feedlot type poultry can’t compare to naturally farmed...
By this definition, the wild gobbler I shot last month during fall turkey season is even better.
Brine: the great equalizer.
For $335, it should come with Rachel Ray,Bobby Flay, Mario Batali, Jamie Oliver, Emeril Lagasse, Gordon Ramsay, Wolfgang Puck, Paula Deen, Giada de Laurentiis, Paul Prudhomme and Guy Fieri to cook it.
Of course, its not just any gobbler, but a heritage bird meaning a breed that goes back before the age of mass-market turkeys on commercial farms. And on top of that, its organic and raised to the exacting Certified Humane standards, which guarantees that animals have shelter, resting areas, sufficient space and the ability to engage in natural behaviors, according to the certification organization. Ayrshire says the result is a better bird taste-wise: It is simply a different product than a typical grocery store turkey, says the farm on its Web site.
But most cooks will ruin turkey by overcooking it. (We are having game hens and ham for Thanksgiving, Wife and I don't like turkey.)
