Has anyone tried the Butterball fully cooked smoked turkey? Is it good enough to serve to guests for Thanksgiving?
Yes, it was good and EASY. It really was a last minute thing, as we had plans out of town then an auto accident changed things. Well, I found one of those fully cooked smoked turkeys you just pop it into the oven to warm, and it was wonderful. We even had company due to people checking in on us. They all wondered how I could pull off such a full dinner on short notice. I made all the pies and homemade mashed potatoes etc. It was good, tasty, and I would buy it again.
Just had one with company. It was the most discusting piece of mystery meat I had ever had. This was the smoked white turkey with breast meat. I was embarrassed that we had company and I had served this.
My Butterball Smoked Turkey was very delicious! I wonder how long I could keep one in a freezer. I always have a July 4th party and would like to buy one now for then, since I don't know if they will be in stores to buy then. Does anyone know if it would keep that long?
We had a whole butterball smoked turkey for Thanksgiving this year. Everyone loved it. I must say, I did not like the stroke smoke smell during the cooking; however, I get overwhelmed by baking end of a turkey baking normally too.
Bought for Christmas dinner. I detest the taste of liquid smoke and this was all I could taste. Would not purchase again.
I served 2 turkeys for Thanksgiving since discovering the Butterball Fully Cooked Smoked Turkey and every year my family devours the fully cooked smoked turkey and hardly touches the oven roasted one that takes me 3 hours or better to roast. I prefer the smoked one, it's really tasty! They are very hard to find in stores.
We had a fully cooked smoked turkey last year. It was super easy and only took 2-3 hours in over per the instruction included. I just did not like the smoke taste.
The fully cooked whole Butterball Smoked Turkey is the best turkey I have ever tasted. Aldi used to have them year round and I would buy 2 or 3 per year. Surprisingly, they taste better cold. If Aldi still has them, I never seem to catch them when they are in the store. I'm trying to find one online that I can get shipped to me.
Impressive taste for a product that is as easy to use as this one it. You are sure to impress with this without a lot of fuss.
It says 2 years on Butterball website. Can be frozen for two years.
I had one last year and it was great! I'm actually trying to find one now.
Just bought one at Aldi on Nov 3rd... looks goodl
I just bought my first one! Having a lot of family over hope it is good. Sure is expensive if it isnt!
They are absolutely wonderful! I would serve to anyone any time. As a rule I don't care for left over turkey but can't stop eating this!
So good! Looking for another one now.
Ive had the whole smoked turkey for years and its always been awesome! I buy three when available so can have them other holidays.
For best quality 7 months, but up to a couple years.
It was the worse thing we every did. After the cooking time and followed instructions it was raw. Kept in oven hours later still not done(dark meat).
Cant possibly have been the Butterball. Ours was just like slicing into normal turkey breast; typical grain and structure; tasted great; no carcass to pick.
ditto: overwhelming fake smoke taste. was extremely tough. wasted a whole expensive bird no one finished what was on there plates. we have always used butterball turkeys with excellent results.
Is it really smoked, or is it Liquid Smoke?
Are you sure it was raw or not fully cooked? Smoked meat is characteristically pink from the smoking process. I once cooked hamburgers with a smoker and a few people who never BBQ refused to eat them because the the meat was pink due to smoking--they thought the meat was raw.
I have been cooking turkeys for 42 years and this was the worst piece of turkey I ever put in my mouth. I wouldn't have known it was turkey, but it came packaged like a typical turkey breast. We love smoked meats and my guess is this piece of meat never saw the inside of a smokehouse and was simply injected with chemicals. My advice...buy a fresh turkey and have it smoked don't even think of buying this.
