(and all the other spelling variants including turduckin, tur-duc-hen, turdukens, tur-duc-kens,  turduckens, turducens, tur-duc-ens, turdunkens, tur-duc-hens & tur-duck-ens)
To Order your Turducken, just click Here
Turduckens Tur-duc-hens Turduckins Tur-Duc-Kens, Turducken Rolls

It's easy to bring out all the delicious flavor of our tasty Turducken.

Our turduckens arrive frozen. Thaw turducken in refrigerator for about 72 hrs. prior to cooking, or quick thaw in cold water for 9 hours.

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Remove plastic bag and place completely thawed bird, breast side up, in a greased roasting pan (non-stick is best), making sure the bird does not touch the sides.

Loosely cover with a tent of aluminum foil and bake approximately
4 to 5 hrs. or until the internal temperature reaches 165 to 170 degrees.

The turducken needs to firm up before transferring and carving,
so let it rest 45 min.

Transfer to a serving platter, supporting the back of the bird.

Cut the turducken in half vertically from the neck to leg area and then begin carving horizontally the individual slices. Enjoy !

How to Thaw and Cook our Turducken Rolls
To Order your Turducken Roll, just click Here

Our Turducken Rolls arrive frozen. Allow to thaw 48 hrs in the refrigerator prior to cooking.

Take the Turducken Roll completely out of the packaging and place it in a pan. Spray baking pan with nonstick spray and leave the net on. Preheat oven to 350 degrees, then cover with aluminum foil and cook the Turducken Roll for 2 hours. Uncover and cook for an additional 25 minutes or until browned. Internal temperature for a cooked Turducken Roll should be 155-170 degrees.

How To Thaw & Heat our Deep Fried Turkeys, Smoked & Roast Turkeys and Hams
To order our Cajun Deep Fried Turkey, just click here

Our Cajun Deep Fried Turkeys, Smoked Turkeys, Roasted Turkeys, and our Honey Glazed Hams arrive frozen. Thaw in refrigerator for about 72 hrs. or quick thaw in cold water for 9 hours.

Our Cajun Deep Fried Turkeys, Smoked Turkeys, Roasted Turkeys, and our Honey Glazed Hams are fully cooked. They just need to be heated. To heat, first remove the plastic bag. If there is any juice in the bag, pour it in the pan that you'll use for heating (this makes good gravy later). Next, leave the item in the foil itís wrapped in. Then slide the pan in your pre-heated oven at 325 degrees for about one hour. Remember everything is cooked Ö You only need to warm them .. over heating will dry them out. The inside temperature should be about 165 degrees.

How To Heat Up Your Extra Cajun Stuffing
To Order extra Stuffing for your Meal, just click Here

If you've ordered extra stuffing along with your bird, here's the instructions for heating up the stuffing after thawing:
Conventional Oven: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Remove the dressing from the box and place on baking sheet covered. Cook 25-30 mins. or until hot. Carefully remove from oven and remove cover. Stir thoroughly and serve.
Microwave: Remove dressing from box and place on a microwave safe dish. Cut slits in film for venting. Cook on high 4-5 mins. or until center is hot (since Wattage varies, cooking times may vary). Carefully remove contents as product will be Very Hot. Stir thoroughly and serve.
