    Pulled Turkey?

    This is something that's been kicking around in my head since the beginning of summer. Has anyone ever slow smoked a turkey portion to make pulled turkey, much like you would a pork butt? I don't want to do a whole turkey, something like a large boneless breast would be ideal but I can't find them uncooked anywhere, they're all precooked and mostly presmoked. I've checked all of the local grocery stores and butcher shops but they all look at me like I've got a screw loose when I tell them what I'm looking for.

    Is this something that just can't be had? Am I going to have to buy a whole bird and just carve out what I want? Anyone?

    Many people do pulled chicken. Cook until done and shred it. Turkey just a big chicken. Both precocial, both belong to the Order Galliformes.

    Gallus domesticus

    Meleagris gallopavo

    I see a "Gall" in both them names. You good to go!!!!!!!!!

      Well, I had to look up precocial to find out what it meant. Then I had to look up Galliformes. I see that the partridge is in the same order. Great, now I'll be on a quest for pulled partridge. I can't imagine the look I'm going to get when I ask the butcher to find me some boneless partridge!

        For what it's worth, leftover smoked turkey makes a GREAT chili, it just falls apart in the cooker like pulled pork. Just chunk it up a bit in 1/2" or 3/4" cubes. Works just as well for enchiladas or taquitos, it just naturally shreds.
