Yep, tried this for the first time years ago, now wouldn't do it any other way. White meat= juicy, dark meat=juicy every time...

RED MEAT

I hate turkey can't stand the smell let alone the taste or the texture. Makes me ill just thinking about it.

While everyone is pounding down turkey at Thanksgiving I hammer a 20oz Porter House and a cold frothy pint....

Damn, I LIKE turkey but after reading that I might just have to have a GunNut Thanksgiving next year, me gusta steak a lot more.

White meat gets too dry because when the dark meat is cooked enough, the white is cooked too much.

This year we cooked the cut-up parts for different amounts of time (dark went in a little earlier than the wings and beasts) and they came out great!

I prefer the white meat but I have no problem eating the dark meat, too. I love turkey. I sometimes make one in the middle of the year just because I crave it. I love the leftovers for days on end, too. Deep fry is best but I'm not picky.

Dark. I cook the turkey upside down so the breasts are juicy.

Ditto that. Breasts down all the way. I flip it for the last 45 minutes so it looks pretty when I take it out. Have never had dry white meat that way.
