How Soon Will I Get My Smoked Turkey After Ordering?
The mesquite-smoked turkeys we have for sale are shipped straight from our door to yours fully cooked and ready for Thanksgiving dinner or any other occasion. Slow-smoked and wood-fired, our pure, premium turkeys have captured the distinct flavors of the Lone Star State since 1977. This Grade-A goodness is aged to perfection then slowly mesquite-smoked – resulting in a turkey so succulent, the fowl-mouthed are left speechless. The net weight of the smoked turkeys we have for sale is approximately 10 pounds.
We ship all of our smoked meats with 1- or 2-day delivery, depending on the preferred arrival date. To guarantee the freshest products, we do not ship orders Friday – Sunday. So make sure you order your smoked turkey with enough time before Thanksgiving or other event.
Do You Provide Instructions on How to Re-heat It at Home?
Yes, we include detailed re-heating instructions in every package and our smoked turkeys are fully cooked beforehand so reheating is all that you need to do. Our smoked turkey can be also be safely refrigerated for a week, but beyond that time frame, it is best to freeze it for later consumption. Using cooking spray and aluminum foil can ensure a crisp bird that is still juicy, and separating the breasts, wings, legs, and thighs to cook separately in the oven pan will speed up the re-heating process if you're short on time. Your turkey needs to reach an internal temperature of 145º F and then cool for 15 to 20 minutes before you carve and serve it.
How Do You Keep the Turkey Fresh During Shipping?
We slow-smoke to perfection and then quickly package your turkey to protect the flavors and texture we have worked so hard to achieve. We never freeze our smoked meats, which would detract from the quality, although freezing and re-heating your smoked turkey may become necessary if you don't consume your whole smoked bird within a few days' time (we suspect, however, that it will disappear quickly!). We ship our smoked turkeys in Styrofoam coolers lined with frozen gel packs that keep the meat at a safe temperature and in top condition until it arrives at your door.

Bored with the usual oven-baked bird, I finally took the ‘leap’ and tried smoked turkey for Thanksgiving last year. The Goode Company smoked turkey was so delicious that our family is ordering another one this year as well!

I have long been a lover of smoked meats, but only recently did I try a smoked turkey. The turkey was shipped to me by a friend, and I can tell you that it was a flavor I'll never forget.
