Have you ever cooked a turducken?

Ever since I saw Paula Deen talk about making a turducken a few years back I've been enthralled with this. Has anyone actually made one? Did you like it? Did it go over well with your family? In short, is it worth it?

  • yep.. but we didn't do that much work.. we ordered it from New Orleans from a place called the Cajun Grocer.. it was stuffed with shrimp Jambalaya and it was pure fantastic wonderful heaven!!! Definitely worth the money.. and definitely bucket list worthy!

  • I've never made one, but when I was a little younger and still at home my mother did for Christmas one year. The chicken was ok, the turkey was ok, but the duck was disgusting! At least that's what the general concensus was with our family. I will NEVER make one or eat one again. Just not for us.

  • Yes. they are labor intensive. IMO they taste better cooked separately, but it makes for alot of conversation and is always something new for most people. Cabela's sells them already pressed together and smoked, absolutely worth the money.

  • I did it with chef apprentices when I was teaching at Culinary school. It is a lot of work, and expensive, so liked it, some didn't. I felt it was too much work for the result. A few years ago I ordered one from my local meat market. It was from Louisiana, highly spiced-it was a big dissappointment. My family did not like it at all, and asked that I please not do it again. They still tease me about it.
