Preparing and Serving...


TO USE WITHIN TWO WEEKS – Leave the wrapper on and store in the refrigerator. Once thawed, you can keep the Smoked Turkey in the refrigerator for as long as two weeks.

TO USE NOW AND LATER – A unique feature of a Bates fully-cooked Smoked Turkey is the ability to refreeze. Slice the Smoked Turkey and wrap in air tight meal size packages to refreeze.

HOW TO SLICE – With any Smoked Turkey it’s gourmet-wise (not stingy) to slice it wafer thin. That lets your lucky palate savor every delicious smoked morsel. A good sharp knife will do the trick.

Occasionally a turkey might have a slight pink cast when sliced…This is a natural characteristic of a Smoked Turkey.

Smoked Turkeys are a READY-TO-EAT delicacy, good either cold or heated. If you prefer to serve your Smoked Turkey heated, place in a moderate 300•F oven for approximately 5 minutes per pound.

The Bates Smoked Turkey has been cured in a mixture of spices, sugar, and honey for a period of time (top secret). The Bates Smoked Turkey is then fully cooked and smoked to perfection with green hickory wood. This whole smoking process takes four days.

It is a pleasure for Bates Turkey Farm to grow and make available to our customers, the traditional American Bird, at it’s finest. Grown in the South by Southerners to create a truly gourmet delight for the most discriminating taste.
