    Anyone ever make Turducken? I have an extra Turkey and an extra Guinea....... but no spare ducks or chickens at the moment [​IMG] I can always buy a chicken. What do you think...... Turchickea? [​IMG] I have some geese..... but I don;t think a goose will fit in a turkey [​IMG]

    Any ideas?

    Oh yeah... here's a Turducken recipe... many more if you search the web.

    I have never been brave enought to try it, so let us know how it turns out! I have heard A LOT of horror stories of salmonella from the chicken not coming to a high enough temperature fast enough or long enough, so BE CAREFULL and good luck!

    LMAO I wondered if people would think that! [​IMG] I had never heard of it before last night when on Ace of Cakes they had to do a Turducken cake for this 18 year old who's favorite word was Turducken. His mom would ask if they needed anything from town .... he'd answer "Turducken"... etc. I thought at first it was an imaginary thing..... but I looked it up and sure enough, it's a real dish! LMAO And it sounds delightful to eat! We're all big meat eaters here..... so I know it would be a big hit!

    If only I had a meat duck still and a spare chicken. I'm pretty sure Guinea will work.... but I need something to go in between the turkey and the Guinea. (Apparently there is not a whole lot of meat to a Guinea)

    We have a radio station that gives them out every year. Have never had one, but it has always sounded intriguing.

    I don't know if Guinea is good... but I saw it referred to as lean and rich on one site. I've got one male too many.... so I figure why not [​IMG]

    I did see someone do it last year and they just carved out the white meat or breasts and wrapped one with the other and the other... and then tied them. They left some stuffing with a whole onion in the center when they cooked it. They had to cook for 6+ hours I think!?

    It was a long process, and I was told it was 'alright'?! [​IMG]
