How To Prepare Your Delicious

Willie Bird Smoked Turkey

    Our smoked turkeys are fully cooked and smoked to an internal temperature of 160 F.  This mean that your Willie Bird smoked turkey is ready to eat hot or cold as needed.

Once the turkey is removed from its vacuum-sealed bag the shelf life is 7 to 10 days in the refrigerator.

Serving Suggestions

COLD: Slice and serve for main course, cut-up for a delicious smoked turkey salad, slice for hors d'oeuvers, etc.  Also use in pasta, split pea soup, baked beans and any other dish that uses ham as an ingredient.

HOT: To serve the whole smoked turkey turkey hot, place in a sealed roaster pan or wrapped in foil and heated at a medium temperature (approx. 325 F.) for the following times or approximately 10 to 15 minutes per pound:

Small (9-12 lbs) - 2 hours

Medium (13-16 lbs)

Large (17-22 lbs) - 3 hours

NOTE: The whole smoked turkey cannot be stuffed before reheating.  Please cook turkey stuffing separately, either on top of the stove or in the oven.  Save the bones or carcass for soup or beans in place of ham hocks.

Smoked Boneless Turkey Breast Or Whole Smoked Chickens.

    Heat the same as whole smoked turkey, 10 to 15 minutes per pound in a 325 F. oven in a covered roaster. For a 3 to 5 lb boneless turkey breast heat approximately 1 to 1 1/2 hours.

    Also, either smoked turkey product can be sliced and heated in a microwave oven, or try an open BBQ for a simple delicious flavor.
