Quick Thanksgiving Turkey Tips
BIGGER ISN'T ALWAYS BETTER!
Turkeys bigger than 18# take longer to cook, don't cook as evenly, and don't fit easily in many ovens. We recommend sticking under this weight range.
ORDER ENOUGH TURKEY FOR ALL!
We recommend ordering a minimum of 1 pound of turkey per person, or 1.5 pounds if you want leftovers for everyone. Who doesn't want leftovers?
COOK A PARTY BIRD FOR YOUR GROUP!
Cook one bird traditionally, then try cooking another bird with a different recipe. You can even try a roast chicken to get enough meat for your group.
Reserve online, pickup in store!
We are sold out of turkeys for this year. If you have a turkey reserved, we have it waiting for you at Lake Geneva Country Meats.
Thanks for your interest.
