I found boneless turkey breasts a few weeks ago at Whole Foods on Arden Way, although it is not regularly available there. I grabbed the only two they had that day. I agree they can be difficult to source. My experience with Jenny-O has been hit and miss. In general I prefer to cook most proteins bone-in but prefer turkey breasts deboned.

I just talked to Thye Butcher Shoppe, and yep, they carry them and they are exactly what I'm after, nice and big, ranging between 9-13lb's they told me. But yeah... pricey at $6.99/lb. Suddenly deboning myself doesn't seem so bad

I'm in northern CA also and have been looking like crazy for these same turkey breasts for a long time. Nugget market had them around the holidays in the 5 pound per breast range and around 5.50 per pound, still expensive for turkey but not the worst i've seen. I bought a couple and stuck them in the freezer but haven't had a chance to try cooking one yet. If they turn out well i might see if i can buy a few more from them as it's the closest thing i've found to whats served in a texas bbq joint. I've bought and deboned breasts, it's not a terrible amount of work but the individual breasts were smaller than what i was looking for.



With the meat supply chain how it is right now it's gotten especially difficult to find certain things. My source for duroc spareribs only sells St Louis cut now so i'm looking all over for a new pork rib source.

The Texas BBQ restaurants aren’t using anything special.

And the carcass gets turned into stock- gonna need some sort of stock for the gumbo anyway, right?
This is what I recently did. Had an extra turkey from a Christmas sale. Cooked the breasts then smoked the rest and vac-packed for the gumbo I did a couple of weeks ago.
