Having to cook the turkey for 2-2.5 hours before serving basting every 30 minutes kind of take away the point of ordering this doesn't it?
From what I heard, since I never cook such a big 14 pound bird from scratch, it needs overnight seasoning soaking in refrigerator, followed by 5-8 hours roasting... ....costco deli never failed me before, I'll take my chances...
Will rep for useful information. I feel generous today
"I got mine" = great deal, you snooze you lose.
"I didn't get mine" = scummy SDers...didn't wait for me.
As a veteran of pre-made Thanksgiving dinners from local grocery stores, I agree with other posters that it's a nice option. I usually pick mine up Thanksgiving day - don't have to store the large bird overnight in the fridge, goes from store to oven for more heating and boom, dinner.
One thing to keep in mind, sides are almost always on the bland side so need a little TLC from the cook.
This Costco deal is a bit different. First, the turkey is not made in the Costco deli. I called Costco for details and was told they are shipped by Ruprecht Company. Since your meal will be shipped to you, you'll be getting it prior to Thanksgiving Day and will need to make space in the fridge. On the plus side, looks like this deal feeds far more people and has more variety in side dishes they my usual.
I'm considering giving this a try but may stick with my local Sprouts. Whether you prefer to make all your own or go with this deal, I hope everyone's Thanksgiving dinner turns out tasty.
