Tomorrow I will be off to my local butcher shop to put in my order for this years turkey.
I am getting a fresh turkey for the first time this year, and am really looking forward to it. It is a local turkey from a farm in Northwestern Illinois, and the butcher is charging $2.19/Lb. Depending on the count I get of attendees tonight I will either get a 10-11 pound bird, or all the way up to a 20 pounder depending on who will be coming.
Who else is going the fresh vs. frozen route, and who are the really dedicated ones getting a heritage bird, or a turducken?
