I am going to smoke my first turkey this week. My question is; does anyone notice a difference between a turkey that costs .45 cents per pound vs. a brand name turkey at 1.20 per pound?
Nope none at all. As long as you brine it w/ a good brine and smoke it properly, you can't tell the difference.
Like Bob said, if brined and smoked properly you can't tell the difference.
Some of the cheaper ones could be a little tough!!!
Good one Bear!
Way to go Bear! You got some strange birds in PA.
