Let's Talk Turkey

Thanksgiving is almost upon us! Let's talk turkey, shall we?

Thanksgiving Cheat Sheet

Why Do We Eat Turkey for Thanksgiving?
Although juicy and tender butterball turkeys are the main cuisine of today's Thanksgiving celebrations, these birds were NOT ALWAYS the most popular centerpieces on the first Thanksgiving tables.

Yes, this next entry is for real!

Season Shot is made of tightly packed seasoning bound by a fully biodegradable food product. The seasoning is actually injected into the bird on impact seasoning the meat from the inside out. When the bird is cooked the seasoning pellets melt into the meat spreading the flavor to the entire bird. Forget worrying about shot breaking your teeth and start wondering about which flavor shot to use!

Load your gun with Season Shot and let the hunt begin. Watch as your bird is seasoned on impact leaving no harmful waste behind in the environment.
Forget about removing shot, prepare the whole bird for dinner! The Season Shot pellets will melt in the oven seasoning the entire bird.
Enjoy! No wasted time, no wasted meat, no waste left behind. Finally there's a better way!

  • The long fleshy skin that hangs over a turkey's beak is called a snood.

  • Male turkeys are nicknamed "toms" while females are called "hens."
  • When turkeys reach maturity they can have as many as 3,500 feathers!
  • Faster than a speeding bullet--Wild turkeys can run up to 55 miles an hour!
