I like the dark meat much more than the breast. My favorite part is the stuffing !!

I learned something new. I initially thought that the "oysters" referred to the kidneys because you referenced two of them on the bird. So, I looked it up. Low and behold, I have eaten this part on a chicken before and found it quite flavorful. Now, I know what to look for on a turkey.

Thanks! DirtGrinder for sparking my curiosity.

Dark meat is delicious, but white meat is supposedly healthier so that's what I go for.

I prefer the white breast meat...though leftovers are my favorite and those pieces are always the best sandwich making pieces =)

On chicken I prefer the legs but on a turkey I find them too dry, so I like the white meat better. In fact, we just buy a turkey breast now and cook that instead of having a whole turkey, where a lot goes to waste.

Dark meat easily. White meat is virtually flavorless.
