I guess its good to hear they aren't that great. When I had to shell $42 for my 3 gallons of pure peanut oil this year I was kickin myself for not calling the BO and makin life simple.

I would have purchased one except they advertised that they are seasoned. I hate any place that attempts to season my food, ie. french fries, etc. I season myself and generally hate the extremely salty taste ofmost seasonings. I don't know if it would have been possible to order unseasoned.

Isn't the point of going to a place like Bojangles to get their seasoned food?

Obviously not in my case. Their chicken is fine. But, I simply wish not to have it on any turkey that I order. For special occasions, I prefer my expert skills in the use of spices, not theirs. Seasoning in these places is a blent of flavorless spices in a shaker that present an unsavory flavour in my opinion.

OK, so we were seeing the Bojangles ads for fried turkey all November this year. So we decided to give it a try.....worst mistake ever. Thanksgiving was pretty much ruined for us. The fried turkeys (we bought 2) were small, think the size of a hen and it tasted vaguely of fish. I think the off-flavor came from the combo of the Bojangles seasonings with the turkey meat. Absolutely horrible. If you are thinking about going this route for Christmas dinner or Thanksgiving next year, you'd being doing yourself a huge favor by having a backup main dish prepared.

Maybe it was where your local Bo's had them stored. We had five picky eaters eat them yesterday and no one complained about a fishy taste. They were about ten pounds each.

We use to fry a turket every year for Thanksgiving and Christmas. We bought the Big Easy Infrared propane cooker by Charbroil. the turkey has about the same taste as deep frying and the skin is just as good. you can get them for around $100.

This is the way to go. My dad used to fry turkeys until the cost of peanut oil went sky high. He got the Big Easy and I can't tell the difference between his fried turkeys and one cooked in the infrared. Much easier, cleaner process too (in additional to huge cost savings).
