Never made it FL but eatin them many times...they are awesome...meat to be made by those guys in LA who invented them...but...I'm not an expert on de-boning birds...if you are...SWEET...I'll order from you!!!  ;D Think if you smoked it...only the turkey would get the smoke...additionally...I think smoking all three birds would be overkill?

Never had it, and thought that USDA did not permit the sale of uncooked Tur-Duc-Hen, but back in July when I was looking for information on this year's Hudson Valley"s Ribfest I came across an article of someone who order an uncooked one, and had smoked it at the ribfest back in '07. If I can find the article I'll post you a link.


I found the link, I had bookmarked it:

I did a tur-chicken.

Shot a wild turkey and put a large roaster hen into it. Came out pretty good. Have to find the disk i have the pics on.

Didnt have a duck at the time.

FLB;

Good luck with you surgery.

If you make the Tur-Duc-Hen let us know how it turns out, and if you were able to purchase an uncooked one or had to go through the deboning.

Where are you in FL, I have read it before but forget.  I live in Orlando, My sister lives in Sarasota and one of her favorite restaurants sells tur duc hen.  It is a restuarant/butcher shop and they sell them whole raw or cooked as a dinner portion, it was actually featured on Food Networks Diners, Drive ins and Dives for the tur duc hen.  I believe the name of the place is Alpine Steakhouse, I will have to double check that.  they are not cheap, I want to say a whole one is about $150

Thanks for trying anyway. We often "go local" and pay more to support a business in our community.

We are in Orlando often, with Disney seasonal passes and 4 kids.
