About this cut
Great for a smaller party or stashing away for a late Thanksgiving dinner, these half turkeys are easy to roast, and will leave you with plenty of bones for a rich stock.
Basic Cooking Technique
Roast at 325F, or smoke. Allow 10 min per pound and use a meat thermometer -- the flesh may still look "pink" but if the temperature is 165F and juices run clear, your bird is cooked. Read more: How To Cook a Half Turkey

This was the best idea to make a half turkey for just 2 of us. But it was so delicious and moist and cooked so easily and quickly that we have decided we’re going to cook 2 halves in the future when we have more guests. The quality and superb taste is just undeniable.
Everyone agreed that this was the best Thanksgiving turkey we've ever eaten!! It was infinitely easier to cook than a whole bird, and despite some grumbling about breaking tradition by not roasting a whole turkey, the whole gang was so thrilled with the result that we are definitely planning a repeat next year - if not sooner! I used a recipe I found online which calls specifically for a half turkey:
I adjusted the temp to 325 and used slightly more wine and broth in the bottom of the pan. The turkey was tender and delicious! (The accompanying gravy recipe, which uses the turkey drippings and involves blending the onion and garlic that roast alongside the turkey, was also a huge winner. I used veg broth in place of the milk.) A huge success!
First turkey I had that didn’t dry out . Meat is very juicy and flavorful , followed the grow behold recipe and used only paprika and shmaltz to season the bird was delicious !
My order arrived on the date requested. The quality was outstanding, The taste was very good. I am very pleased with my turkey. Thank God I found you, knowing what I am eating is important. Thank you.
Too salty....not very special. Wouldn't buy again.
Arrived as aspected. Cooked as directed from the website. It came out perfect! The taste was wonderful
This half turkey is the perfect size for a small crowd. It cooked quickly and was moist and full of flavor.
Packs & Weights
Our frozen meats are packaged in vacuum-sealed packs. Most packs contain one piece (ie, one Brisket). Some packs will contain two pieces (ie, Lamb Chops). Packs of smaller items, such as Chicken Wings or Pepper Steak, will contain multiple pieces.
These vacuum-sealed packs are generally packed in a cardboard box. If there is an option to choose how many packs you'd like in the box, you'll make that choice under "Number of Packs". Then you'll choose the total weight of the box (that is, the combined weight of all the the packs in that box).
Example: Lamb Chops
Let's say you're ordering Lamb Chops and you select the following:
You've chosen: 2 packs, ~1.9lbs, and the price shows as $60.78.
You’ll receive 1 box, with 2 packs of lamb chops inside. The whole thing will weigh approximately ~1.9lbs and will cost $60.78.
Each pack will contain 2 lamb chops, and weigh approximately .95lbs.
You’ll have 4 lamb chops in total. Each will weigh approximately .475lbs (note that one may be slightly larger and one slightly smaller).
Weight Ranges & Prices
To keep our fulfillment system practical and manageable, products with variable weights are sold in a weight range (this includes most frozen meats, with the exception of deli meats, sausages and beef jerky). We keep the ranges as small as practically possible to minimize the variation you might receive. If a price/lb is shown with a *, it is an estimate for comparison purposes only, since the price associated with each weight is the price for all items within that weight range.
This chart shows the weight ranges for all our products:
|less than 0.99lb||0.05lb|
