I am here in Jomethien and saw some brown looking frozen things here it was Precooked Turkeys. They proably are 450 a kilo or 450 each. 

Would you try one?  Proably what they are serving at Xmas lunch at the local restaurants.

I ordered a pre cooked butterball last year and it was OK but not as good as a fresh cooked one. The rules may be changing I have seen frozen raw butterball turkey this year. I will make do with a Hungry  man TV dinner. Gotta like Villa deliveries.

diseases over there. not 450 THB each ,per Kilo.

I doubt even if there from the states looks like a Thai Turkey Company.  Your better off have new Zealand lamb or Sirlion roast. 

We are having  new zealand lamb,the wife loves it almost as much as welsh lamb that is brought up on salt plains in s wales( can only get it there it is fantastic ) still tried one of those pre cooked turkeys one year ,not all that nice. So lamb it iz with roast parsnips ,sent by angels from heaven😇

Did you check the dates on those turkeys and/or their country of import, not origin?

Had some remarkably strange looking skinny but also very fatty local Turkey a few years ago at a friends house - it was awful....

 

Also had a Turkey delivered by Sunrise taco’s (in BKK) a couple of years ago... obviously fully cooked along with pots and vet, stuffing etc....  a

 

It surprised the heck out of me that a fast food mex restaurant did turkey... t’was impressive.

Definitely.

 

Unfortunately the Issan branch in Sakon Nakhon is so limited.

 

Ketchup and Mustard is the only thing resembling foreign food here.

Don’t do it.  They are hideous.  Tried last year and spoiled Christmas dinner..  subsequently tried Thai raised fresh Turkey and that was a major disappointment as well.  I am going to try goose or ham this year.

Thai turkeys are not cooked, but only look to be skin and bones.

Had some Thai turkey a few years agto in Samui. Dark meat that looked and tasted like duck..the <deleted>s.

Here's what I do. Get a pre cooked chicked from Makro, Make or buy stuffing/dressing, mashed spuds,gravy and cranberry sauce. You should be able to get 2 meals from that for under 500 baht. It works for me. I've been to local places that sell Thanksgiving turkey dinners and they shredded the meat?? yuk

Gave up on turkey over two decades ago, even after trying turducken (too time consuming) and deep fried in peanut oil (one trick pony).  Holidays at Iron Tongue's household revolves around prime rib roast.  Easiest thing to make and no drying out like turkey.  5-minutes per pound @ 500°F, then turn off oven and wait 2-hours without opening oven.  Perfect med-rare prime rib every time!

with chips , in white sauce , curry,  stir fry ,it never ends.

I have here a squeezy thing of French's American bland.  What makes it so much better is a dollop of McGarrett wasabi powder in it. Damn nearly as good as Coleman's.
