Pluck or de breast
personally I just de breast..maybe grab the legs
I plucked them for years but now I just keep the breast. We never eat much of the rest of the bird......and those darned pin feathers suck! I just filet out the two breast pieces and cut that into strips for use in whatever dish the wife wants to prepair that particular day. My favorite is BBQ'd on the grill or even plain ol fried turkey strips. Lately the wife has put "US" on a diet and have baked strips put into a salad. Even that is pretty darned good.
Me too. Breast 'em out.
likem that way// I'v smoked one on the grill..better than I expected
Fried nuggets here!
If it's for deep frying, plucked. Otherwise breasted out.
I am a breast man!
breast em out, and take the legs also. its just way to much work to pluck.
My dad has a fishfry every year for his birthday. So we alway try to pluck them if we can. We they have too much led in them then we always de breast. lol
last time I did that i got smacked
had a buddy that wanted the legs off one a couple years ago. told him he was wasting his time but he said he would use them in a stew and cook them real slow. couple months later he said he cooked them over 12 hours real slow like and it was still like chewing on leather.
I debreast mine.
My favorite way so far is to take each breast half and cut it in half width wise, then cut each piece in half. It gives you a thinner, pretty decent sized piece of breast meat. Then I run them through the electric tenderizer and deep fry them like a tenderloin or something and have it on a sandwich. Delicious, and melts in your mouth
I skin, then debone hanging. I go after the thighs, much better than the legs.
I skin 'em too.
I guess I must be the only one who also takes the thighs and the wings? Put them in the slow cooker with your favorite seasonings and the tenderize pretty well. Anyone else get that hunk of white meat out of the back? Man, when I'm done with it, there isnt anything left.
I just debreasted mine today. Worked pretty slick. My past experience with wild turkey legs is that they are real tough and sinewy.
Nope, I skin the whole thing, and we eat it all.
i agree with the rest but i also keep the thighs and legs for my gumbo mm m m m
If its got meat on it I use it. The legs, wings, and back get slow cooked, then deboned and add some carrots,celery potatoes, homemade egg noodles and some spices and it makes a fine meal. The breast I cut into strips, cut a pocket in it, stuff the pocket with cheese, then wrap in bacon and grill. The breast tenders get battered then deep fried. I still havent found a recipe to make the feathers taste good.
