How do you guys store the turkeys after you cook them? Like if you have a whole bird for pickup, do you put in a pan and wrap or something like that for when people pick up? Then they just pop the pan in the oven and reheat to 160 or something?

Buster - I cool them down and then use the 2 gallon vacvuum bag just enough for snug / not crush, then store in my large 500 quart ice chest.

Remember to include a note with instructions to reheat the turkey to a safe temperature for consumption. We always print those up and tape them to the top of the wrapped turkey.

I only do them for friends, coworkers, and family. Last year I did them for $35. I also buy the enhanced birds because they are kind of brined...

I doubt I do them this year..

I charge $45 to $75 depending on the size of the bird. THey are a pain in the butt though. Maybe I'll do Prime Rib exclusively this year...

What kind of hams do you use? We have been asked to cook 4 for a nursing home. How much do you charge?

$75 for a smoked turkey? Do you get a lot of buyers at that price?

That looks like a great menu lazybones. For folks that pickup cold, how do you store everything?

Are you like the others here and don't feel turkeys are a good profit margin?

I charge $3 per pound plus the cost of the turkey... Usually comes out to about $75 each (average 16 - 18 Pounds)...

Remember I'm a small operation so I only do 5 to 10 each year, but I do sell out...

Everything is in disposable half pans and ready to be be warmed up in the oven. Turkey's are good money. I buy them for about $12 and sell them for $39.99 The only downside is their size in my smoker.
