The weeks for dirt cheap turkey are here! Make room in your freezer and stock up.

For all the stores that have cheap (or free) turkeys with a minimum purchase, coconut oil adds up fast and is shelf stable. I restock OTC allergy meds, DayQuil, ziplock bags, etc. during cheap turkey week to meet minimums and get more free turkeys.

Some stores will allow you to buy gift cards to hit that minimum, which is even better.

Reminders for anyone new to seasonal turkey hoarding:

1. Read the label. Some brands are pre-brined and come in a salty flavor solution that needs to be rinsed off if you raw feed.
2. Ask at the meat counter if they have extra gizzards, necks, and backs. Stores that thaw and chop up whole birds as a convenience for their customers often set these aside as extras and will sell them for dirt cheap. Turkey gizzards are huge and easy to feed, or boil and cut up as treats.

Don't know why I never thought of buying and feeding them a raw turkey or two.

When I had my deep freeze I routinely stocked up on turkeys. Walmart sells cheap twice a year. Ten bucks for a turkey that will feed me and the dog or just the dog for days. I either have roast turkey 4-5 times a year or if push comes to shove I have meat for the dog. Even my small freezer holds 7-8 turkeys plus the other food. If you buy utility they are even cheaper, labels usually indicate neck or no neck. Shadow loves her turkey necks!

Every year we say we will cook a turkey more often than just on Thanksgiving, and before we know it, Thanksgiving rolls around and we haven’t eaten turkey in a year.

We might be weird, but my husband and I and all our dogs love turkey.

It is kind of an ordeal to thaw and commit to prepping / chopping up a whole 20lb bird, but there aren't many opportunities to put (literally) hundreds of pounds of free human grade meat in your freezer. Smoked on the grill, homemade soup, turkey enchiladas - I'm down to my last two from last year, just in time to round up this year's stockpile. :D
