Recommendations for Cooked Turkey Supermarket?

diner101 | Nov 9, 2008 11:20 AM

I have roasted many turkeys for 20+ people for our family gatherings using many different recipes, and favorite is the brined recipe from SF Chronicle, usually juicy But this year, asking Chowhounds if there is a knockout roasted turkey from the many upscale markets, ie. Whole Foods, Andronicos, Draegers, Molly Stone, Lunardi, Bi-Rite, etc;: criteria is juicy and moist and better than homecooked. To me, turkey is always better than leftovers, prefer dark to white meat. Cannot tell turkey quality difference if 99 cent a pound to $2.99 for organic, free range etc. Turkey is way over rated for flavor. Like to pick up on Thanksgiving Day, piping hot if possible or day before. San Francisco, East Bay, Peninsula in that order. No need for side dishes, home made is always better than market. No Safeway or Luckys, please.
