  1. Hey, You have a cool site. I am a big fan of food network and look forward to your annual turkey sales blog post. I will be smoking mine on my weber kettle spatchcock style this year. I usually buy the cheapies but think it might be worth an extra 10 bucks or so to get a good one. Although last year I got a trader Joes prebrined one that was pretty good.
    I am also from MI in the Sterling Hts area.

  2. Eric,

    Trader Joes ad he here.

    I bought one of these last year.
