    Personally, I love the dark meat. The white meat is usually too dry for me.

    I like the white meat. It is drier but I like the taste a lot better. Plus you can always pour gravy over it

    Just like Clue said, you can pour good ole gravy all over it!!! You have to go with the white meat.

    Gotta agree, never could understand why the white meat was always so dry but the dark meat was so moist.

    Dark meat at Thanksgiving dinner, white meat with Miracle Whip for leftover sandwiches.

    I like both because it doesn't come out dry if you deep fry it. :)

    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.
