"This poll will close on 11-26-2009 at 10:19 PM" Is that to leave enough time for those who just can't decide to figure it out?

White for me. Actually, the results are close enough that dark-meaters would have to fight over the drumsticks.

Since I am still stuck in Pennsylvania, I helped at a friend's seasonal turkey farm. We killed over 2800 birds in 6 days this year. It seems that a lot of folks this year wanted "dark meat parts", though there are always the folks that like to purchase breasts only. My friend raises great turkeys without chemicals, hormones, etc... And they are sold fresh. Boy does that make the difference!I personally like the white meat for eating plain or for a sandwich. But when I make a casserole or other dish from the leftovers, I do prefer the dark meat, as it has more flavor and the fat content helps balance the recipe out. We had one dress out over 41lbs! Seems a lot of the birds, once again had a good covering of fat, too. You know that it is a sign that we are in for another long, cold winter! Next week, when we start processing deer, I want to see how much "fat" the deer are packing! HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!!

I cut up the turkey after dinner and separated the white and dark meat in seperate tupperware containers. Our bird was 23 lbs but had at least 24 lbs of meat on it. I went around the house after and shook hands with a few people before washing my hands. Fun stuff.

I can report that the dark meat went faster than the white meat here for left overs. I think it's just because there is just more white meat on the bird. Any leftovers were packed in coolers for the kids to take home.

There were four of us at my table for the holiday and when we cleaned up, there were two FULL breasts untouched on the turkey I cooked and not a speck of dark meat left anywhere in sight!!! LOL First time I've ever seen that happen to a bird in my house!!
