In case you had not noticed now more than ever shoppers have a variety of types of turkeys, beyond just the name brand.

This weekend when I was at the grocery store, I was walking past the trough of frozen turkeys when I noticed more than one person closely examining them. One guy was shaking the turkey and another was tapping on it like a drum. Now I have no idea what they were trying to accomplish but I did come across this great article from dfw.com about different variety's of Turkey.

Of course you have Fresh, Frozen, Organic, Free Range and more. Who would have thought this could be so complicated. I know in the past we always bought the brand that had the button that popped out when it was done. :) Whatever turkey you buy, click on the link above to take the guess work out of thawing and cooking whatever type of turkey you decide to get.
