    Default Turkey prices

    I can't believe the turkey prices! We were in Buffalo and picked up Riverside Turkey for $.19/lb. Either we are going to get a surprise when we eat them or that was a deal. My local store has Butterballs for $2.38/lb. I googled Riverside and didn't find anything negative on them. Am I missing something?

    Someone screwed the pooch on pricing them probably. Bet they should have been $1.19 a pound. Right now around here they are pricing from $.40 - $.60ish a pound.

    Might just be me (you know it's coming) but $.19 a lb is still too much.

    Local Wood's had small turkeys for 40 cents a pound last week. I nabbed several 11 lb'ers. I sure wish I had a deep freeze. I would have filled that sucker up. But I agree with Piggy, 19 cents seems like a mistake to me. Oh well, either way, that's a deal.

    Tulsa prices are in the $0.89 - $1.19 but Food Pyramid has them for $0.39 if you spend $20.00 but all of those prices are for enhanced frozen birds. I must have a fresh turkey as one of the daughters has a problem with MSG, and other perseratives. $0.19 was probably a LOSS LEADER or some one made a big mistake.

    It's been a few years since I've seen them that low, but it's not uncommon for retailers to lose money on turkeys for Thanksgiving knowing that they can make up for it on all the other goodies. I've even seen them for free when you meet other purchase requirements. Kroger is selling Jennie-O birds for $.27/lb. in Houston. I went for a fresh one from HEB for $.97, just cause I wanted one that was not enhanced.

    True. But mine isn't. All of the frozen ones at any store I checked were.

    I have never seen a frozen one that wasn't.

    to me, there is a big difference between injected turkeys and enhanced pork.

    Other than the cured smoked birds, I have never seen one done up in a solution that changes the consistency of the meat itself.

    Pork or beef on the other hand shows a lot of physical changes because of the different chemicals they use.

    Poultry solutions generally do not use a whole lot of tenderizing ingredients.

    Personally, I like having the fats and MSG or small amounts of salt injected into the thick part of the breast. My experience is that it helps keep the meat juicy and adds flavor. I mean, it's hard to get flavors into the middle of the breast w/o injecting.
    But then, that's just my preference.
