Our succulent Texas Smoked Turkeys are seasoned with our secret family recipe and smoked for over 10 hours on Texas mesquite and oak hardwoods.  There are many folks who have had other big national brands and to be modest, people prefer the taste of our Smoked Turkeys.  Simply put, we use Grade A hens and the perfect combination of spices and hardwoods to make for a mouthwatering experience.

Chef John has been working with people in Midland, TX and other areas of Texas to help people with their Thanksgiving and holiday purchases of this smoked bird.  It should be noted that for large volume orders of turkey the sooner your place your order the better off you are.  Most companies place their order for Smoked Turkey in October for November and December delivery.  The reason why we need a little time to fulfill large corporate orders of turkeys is because we handcraft the bird and it takes time to smoke them the right way.

What Is The History Of Smoked Turkey And Thanksgiving?

The history of Thanksgiving and turkey goes back to the days of religious holidays between families as a gesture of thanks coinciding with the time of harvest.  The holiday known as Thanksgiving is very popular in North America rooted in tradition among the pilgrims of New England.  The first official nation-wide day of Thanksgiving was proclaimed by President George Washington on November 26th, 1789.  Over the years the Thanksgiving feast being around the time of harvest, has allowed foods like pumpkin pie, oven roasted turkey and thanks to Texas tradition, Smoked Turkey is common around this time.
