Turkeys Appearance/Giblets

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hi there,


I just bought a case of turkeys for smoking and one of the turkeys seemed different in bone structure from the other 3.  Almost seemed a little deformed.  Has anyone else had this experience and should I be alarmed?


Also, what can I do with the neck and giblets?  I sure hate to waste them if there's a good way to use them.

In the past I have smoked the giblets and neck just so they take up some smoke flavor then simmer them for a nice long while.  I take what meat is on them and place it in the juice in which I simmered them in.  I use flour to thicken it and make gravy by boiling it to the desired thickness.  Now it thickens even more once it cools so you want it kind of runny.

Oh yeah of course season the gravy to your liking with salt and pepper.
