Turducken anyone?

Okay, it was mention somewhere else on this site, but I was curious how many people have had TurDuckEn? (A turkey, stuffed with a duck, stuffed with a chicken?) I have heard that it's a Southern tradition, but I have never actually met anyone that has had it. I am wondering how it tastes? How do you carve it? How many people does it feed?

  • It's not meat's a whole boneless chicken inside a whole boneless duck, inside a whole boneless turkey, with stuffing in between usually. I hate duck, but it looks interesting when sliced.

  • Ok - I live in Monroeville, Alabama (very small) and one Christmas they were heavily advertised around here. I have never had it but saw a picture of it - just looked like a turkey to me. The place where I work now had one then and they said it was ok. I think it feeds a lot of people. I know I have not seen it advertised again so I guess it was not a hit.

  • It sounds gross. Too much meat stuffing. Bleh!

  • How do they carve it? My DH told me that they actually use duck meat and chicken meat and stuff the turkey with it. I could have sworn that I saw Paula Dean stuffing the turkey with the other birds, but maybe I am wrong. I think I am going to research it. I have never had duck, I would think it would be a little gamey.

  • Okay, I watched a YouTube video on how to make this. It looks complicated. You use deboned birds (all of them) and there is stuffing between the layers. Then it has to be tied back up, so in effect it's pretty much a poultry loaf. Interesting. I would try it if I knew someone serving it, but I don't think I would make it for my small family.

  • I just got an email today and it was talking about turducken. Here is the website - it even shows a pic. Looks like a turkey but they say it has 6 legs?!?
