Turkey is cheaper than chicken? I can normally get chicken breasts for $2/lb, and dark meat/whole birds for $1/lb and except for Thanksgiving Turkey is normally $3-4/lb. I love turkey. Perhaps because it is rare, and I have almost always had a tasty turkey. Since I have been doing Thanksgiving for the last 6 years, I smoke the turkey, and it doesn't last. Ham on the other-hand... I'll just go hungry.
