Dark for me. I agree white meat is dry. I brine the bird overnight and bake it in an oven bag with stuffing.


Life ain't supposed to be easy.

I don't cook whole turkeys anymore.I can fit three Turkey Breasts in the roaster I used to cook a whole turkey in.Better off in the long run with more meat and easier to cut.Everyone around here goes for the white meat anyhow.I will hear"I like dark meat,,,I like dark meat" then that sits there while everyone fills their platter with white meat and gravy.Sicilian household here any way so no matter what kind of meal is cooked like turkeys or hams,,there is always a side batch of some kind of macaroni,,usually Baked Ziti with Homemade Sausage and meatballs.If no one wants ham or turkey,,they can go fill up on macaroni while I drink my wine. laugh

Once you go dark, you'll never go back lol. I'd be happy with a plate of chicken necks!


I wonder if tap dancers walk into a room, look at the floor, and think, I'd tap that. I wonder about things.....

I used to think the same way. Wouldn't eat the dry turkey it was terrible.

My wife's turkey is normally great with juice running out as I'm slicing it on every slice. There was a few years when she was learning and young they were not as good yet they were far better than most even then. One a few years back she got busy and one got away from her a little. It was still better than 95% I have had but boy she was up set with herself.
. I don't know what she does I'm smart enough to stay out of the kitchen unless she ask for help with something. I go hunting with the kids and cut wood.(self preservation at work)

Dark meat, I really like the liver, gizzard and heart too.


I got myself a seniors' GPS.
Not only does it tell me how to get to my destination,
it tells me why I wanted to go there.

Best part of the turkey is the neck. Durmsticks are second best. I brine all my turkeys and they come out great. Always gives a juicy bird. Look up Pioneer Woman turkey brine, it is simple to make. I raise or shoot all the turkeys we eat, store bought birds are injected with sodium and preservatives (read the label on the bird package).
