We just had the BEST turkey I've ever had, and it was a Costco clearance turkey. The brand is Diestel Family Farms and they are pre-seasoned with a Fra'mani brand rub and brine in a plastic shrink packaging at the store. Normal price from Diestel Farms online is $125. Costco has it in stores for $52 for 15 lbs. Right now they are selling them for $30 off each turkey, making it about $22/ea for 15 pounds, which is a good deal - until you taste it and realize it's a GREAT deal.
This is easily the most flavorful, delicious, moist turkey I've ever made, bar none, over decades of making turkeys. We got the last two at the store, and if there were more, I would have bought them. If you're lucky enough to have any left at your store with the $30 off per turkey deal, don't think, just buy it!
