Are you considering Sam's Club as the source for your Thanksgiving bird this year? I took my two girls and headed over there for some soft pretzels and some turkey research. I came home with what I hope is all the answers for your Sam's Club turkey questions.
Questions I have received about Sam's Club turkeys
1. What are the prices of turkeys at Costco?
Butterball Fresh Turkeys for $.99/pound (same price as Costco)
Honeysuckle Smoked Whole Turkey for $2.38/pound
Butterball Deep Fried Turkey Breast for $5.28/pound
2. Does Sam's Club sell already fried turkeys?
You can buy a boneless Butterball turkey that has already been deep fried for $5.28/lb. It just needs to be reheated on Thanksgiving.
3. Does Sam's Club sell frozen or fresh turkeys?
The only turkeys I found in the store were fresh turkeys, so no. Has anyone seen a frozen turkey at their store?
4. Does Sam's Club sell smoked turkeys?
Yes. They do. A whole smoky one from Honeysuckle. I did not find a smoked turkey at their rival Costco.
5. Does Sam's Club sell Honeysuckle turkeys?
Yes, but only ones that have already been smoked.

6. Can You Freeze a Honeysuckle Smoked Turkey?
Smoked meat does last longer but it has already been cooked, but if you wanted to get more time out of it, then you certainly cook freeze it (see what the packaging says use by dates). They come vacuum sealed so would be easy to toss in the freezer. If you are saving leftovers in the freezer, wrap them in heavy duty foil and place them in a plastic zip top bag.
7. Does Sam's Club have Organic Turkeys?
They didn't have one this year. My local Costco did have them for $2.99/pound.
8. Does Sam's Club sell pre-cooked turkeys?
Both the Butterball Deep Fried Turkey breast and the Honeysuckle Smoked are already cooked.
9. Does Sam's Club sell turkey breast for roasting
They only had the already deep fried turkey breast. Check other stores in your area for turkey breast. Most other stores carry them including Walmart, Meijer, Whole Foods, Kroger, etc. Costco doesn't have them either.
