Turkey is on a very short list (rabbit is another) of meat that I wouldn't ever choose to eat. Dry, bland, and I've tried making curry out of leftovers, only to ruin a perfectly good curry sauce.

Rabbit is fine with me but Turkey isn't even fit for carrion to eat. I have no idea why people think it's OK? :sick: :sick:

Beef last year but madam has decided we're going back to turkey crown this year.
I'd rather have a couple of geese but she doesn't like them.
Beef or pork joint for boxing day but she hasn't made her mind up which yet. So I might get both & stick then in the freezer.
And a large ham.

A big chunk of beef in the slow cooker, and some clove and ginger gammon. Not a fan of turkey.

I like confit or slow cooked Turkey legs, a nice piece of ham plus a lovely cut of beef cooked the low side of medium rare.

Boxing Day is sorted then as well βœ…

If you do Turkey crown it must be wet brined otherwise it’s just bland and often dry due to no bones and no fat on the breast.

I much prefer the dark meat of any poultry.
