MAKRO Precooked Frozen Turkeys in Western Food in Thailand Posted Monday at 09:09 AM It has become a tradition that I serve up turkey and other good stuff for a Christmas family buffet and I always used to use uncooked butterball turkeys. Then a few years ago uncooked turkeys were banned, but one year I managed to get hold of one. As the family insist on turkey, we tried the pre-cooked butterball turkeys a couple of times. If you follow the instructions carefully they are ok. I covered the turkey with bacon and aluminum foil for the first hour to keep the moisture in. This year Tops had a promotion on Australian pre-cooked turkeys and we decided to give it try and ordered one. Thai turkeys are a complete waste of money as they are nothing but skin and bones. All in all pre-cooked turkeys can be used but they are not quite the same as uncooked.
