Greenberg Smoked Turkey, Tyler Texas

Stefany B. | May 14, 200108:32 PM     12

As part of my Mothers Day buffet I ordered a smoked turkey to be delivered to me (NYC) on Friday before M Day. I wanted the biggest one they had. The one that arrived was 15.5 lbs and had the most incredibly intense smokey aroma. My whole apartment smelled like a smokehouse.

I had previously spoken with Sam Greenberg online to find out if the bird would arrive in a netting, which I think is very undesirable for serving,and he assured me that it wouldn't (and it didn't).

The bird itself was almost black, inside and out and appeared to be a substantial, free range bird, very good quality and *very* smokey.

Has anyone had any experience with this purveyor? I had heard that this was a very good source but I have to say that for my tastes it was far too smokey overshadowing all of the turkey flavor and the breast meat near to the skin was dry. But I have to say, I'm not certain that I can make an assessment other than my personal taste preferences.

I'd really be interested in anyone's experience or information regarding real smoked turkey (not the Boars Head kind).
