Turkey necks for broth?

thistle5 | Nov 25, 201412:20 PM

I've started smoking 2 turkeys, since it's supposed to snow tomorrow-I'll portion the larger one, & use the carcass for stock, & bring the smaller one (whole & gently reheated)to the family dinner.

I've always thrown the turkey necks away in the past, but today I threw them in a crockpot, w/ s&p, & a shot of applecider vinegar-to be honest, they do not smell wonderful, so I'll probably just use it to pour over the dogs' food. Should I have used them w/ the turkey carcass or just chucked them? Now that I think about it, I should have put them in the smoker, for awhile, to caramelize them a bit.
