Suggestions for a great turkey to cook?

lane192547 | Nov 4, 2007 01:37 PM

My scattered thoughts are once again turning towards Thanksgiving day and of course the centerpiece will be a barbecued turkey. I have to admit that I've been kinda disappointed in the turkeys I've purchased in the Portland area in the past few years. I've been getting the Diestel brand fresh turkey in the past few years from W.F., but I'm not too impressed. I've also cooked Shelton turkeys in the past too, with some good results.

I know that Cooks Illustrated recommends Rubashkin's Aaron's Best kosher frozen turkeys, but I've never seen them in stores around here. Using a kosher bird would be nice because I could skip the brining, but I'm open to all suggestions except tofu :-)

Does anyone have a suggestion for a great bird in the Portland area?
