There's always a white membrane left on it no matter how hard you try to get all the skin off.
I keep one of those in my freezer -- I don't make it on Thanksgiving but it is actually pretty good if you cook it in the crockpot with some boxed turkey broth and a lot of vegetables.

I think that turkey related threads were condensed, maybe?

If you look at the first post, it's crazy that in 2018 the grocery stores were selling turkeys for .39/lb in some locations. I picked my Butterball turkey up on sale at Walmart for $1.18/lb this year. I could have gotten another brand of turkey for .99/lb but I opted to go for my tried and true brand.

With Butterball, I just follow the cooking directions that come with the bird. It always comes out nicely.

The reality of huge outbreaks of Avian Flu has led to a curtailed supply of turkeys this year. Then, if you throw in supply chain issues--such as a shortage of long-haul truckers--you have the makings of a genuinely smaller supply of those birds.

If it makes you feel any better, this year I am going to pay $2.99/lb for the fresh organic turkey that I have ordered from Whole Foods.

Here's a shocker... the white meat is the dryest meat, right? I roast mine upside down so the juices from the dark meat go into the breast meat. I've been doing it for years. MUCH better.

one of my sons' favorite memories was when they were in middle school, (they are well over age 35 now)
and we were having the conversation about how none of us even like turkey, and one of the boys said Taco Bell would be better and i said who would rather go to Taco Bell than have turkey, and they all raised their hands, and i said let's do it and so we had Taco Bell. We still tell that family story. Major mom points .

I always like to brine the turkey in apple juice based brine and if you leave it in the bath for 3 days and smoke it on pecan for a good solid 6+- hours based on weight. It's always a hit.

We have several places around here that have stopped taking orders because they can't get enough turkeys. I'm paying $2.59 a pound, not the highest end turkey but a pretty good one at the market. Their cheapest fresh start at $1.29, and that's the cheap store brand.
