utility turkey?

we heard No Frills have a sale on frozen turkeys.  75cents a lb.  when she got there found the "utility" turkeys were the ones on sale.  found out a utility turkey means it may be missing some "parts"

got it home and upon further investigation found it had only 1 drumstick.

what the heck could have happened to other one?  is it a cripple?


I'm sure it will still be good once i smoke it!

Hello bagbeard.  Many folks just smoke turkey crowns ( the breast ).  When just the wife and I are eating I smoke the legs and thighs.  Grab yourself another couple at that price and start experimenting.  Good luck.  Post pics.  Keep Smokin!
