Whatever is on the platter when it makes it to me. As long as it's meat I'm good.

A couple pieces of white as long as itís mostly dark. It doesnt matter who or how itís cooked-white meat is dry and flavorless

Prefer dark. Especially the thigh.
Along the back are two little medallions that are my favorite piece

My Grandfather preferred the "part that went over the fence last" that fatty little piece of tail

That tail piece was called the Popeís Nose and the patriarch of the house had it on his plate.

White no skin


Money cannot buy you happiness, but it can buy you a trapping license and that's pretty close.

After it's cooked I shred it into medium size chunks and cook it in a slow roaster with a little chicken stock plus some other stuff, dark and white mixed together everyone seems to think its edible

Always preferred dark meat. More moist and better texture. White meat is dry dry dry. Hard to chew and you need to have a mouthful of water to wash it down.

Turkey ainít so wonderful to begin with, dryer than sawdust. Lots of gravy helps it down the hatch.
We do ham for Thanksgiving unless we get a smoked turkey. Then I am laying claim to the back meat and dark thigh meat on that turd bird.

Dry turkey breast meat? You prepped and cooked it wrong.
