I like to make stock for turkey dinner early which means I need turkey necks and (when possible) backs a couple of days or a week before the big event. These parts have become increasingly hard to find. Local Harris Teeter did not even try to order them. But when I went to Lowes Foods, the butcher there was breaking down full turkeys for parts. That meant I was able to get a couple of necks and backs for my stock. If I wanted legs/thighs/wings or breasts instead of a whole turkey, I could have picked them up as well. Price for my backs and necks was a reasonable 49 cents a pound. I am so grateful, I will go back and buy my turkey and fixings there on Tuesday. Thanks, Lowes. I don't know anyplace else that offers that kind of customer service.
