Thanks for the review! I've also been thinking about trying one. We always get a fresh organic turkey for Thanksgiving, and we can taste a huge difference (also seemingly a lot less fat) than the regular butterball variety, but I have always been wondering about the organic chickens.
The ones we buy at Kroger/King Soopers are always Foster Farms All Natural. They are pretty good but not spectacular by any means (but only $1.49/lb not on sale). The thing is that all chickens can be considered "all natural" and still have some type of crappy injection/brine in them. It's been illegal for a very long time to give chickens hormones or such.
Here's one of those Foster Farms "all natural" ones I did last night, along with some "all natural" turkey legs.
