    In the wild, animals kill and eat each other. Just saying....

    Those who need meat in their diets do, you're right, what they don't do is go to the supermarket and buy it, pre-killed, wrapped in plastic, and frozen. Just saying....
    If humans were hunting and killing their own food, using bare hands (not rifles), then the meat we would eat would be predominantly insects, with the occasional fish.

    By the way, millions of people throughout the world have proved that we do not require animal products in our diet, in fact, a balanced, vegan diet has been shown to be very healthy, and those who follow a healthy vegan diet suffer far less from heart disease, cancer, dementia, etc.

    Now I feel guilty for eating that big bird that's in the oven, maybe I won't have any turkey after all.

    Just kidding, I can't wait to eat that bird.😊😁😂

    I buy my meat pre-killed at the grocery store for the same reason that the majority of vegans buy their veggies pre-killed and sitting on the shelf. In the modern world, people have jobs and we can't roam the woods like the American Indian and kill what we eat and grow our own crops. It's simply not realistic.


    As far as your vegan lifestyle, I congratulate you on that. I eat a very strict diet that consists mostly of fruits and veggies but I do eat turkey, chicken and fish a lot. And I occasionally eat beef. It's a personal choice, Debs. It's been that way since the beginning of time.

    Re: Let's talk TURKEY

    Best turkey to date was a fresh 15lb bird bought from a local poultry retailer, prepared as follows:

    Was washed and then brined in Meat Church's 'Bird Bath Brine' for about 16 hours (~1hr / lb).

    Then rinsed and patted dry, then allowed to dry cure in the refrigerator for about 8 hr to get the skin a little tacky.

    Injected with a seasoning / moisturizing / tenderizing mix also from Meat Church.

    Mixed desired seasoning rub with some mayonnaise, ~tbsp seasoning in 1/2 cup, and rubbed all over the bird.

    Hung in a vertical pellet smoker at 275F until both breast and thigh hit 165F, took about 4-1/2 hr. Put a foil catch pan under the bird to use the drippings in the gravy.

    Increased temperature to 350F for about 1/2 hr to crisp the skin.

    Remove, rest and carve. This was the most tender and moist turkey that has ever passed my lips. Now I'm apparently in charge of Thanksgiving turkey, actually all turkey, from now on...

    And no, I'm not advertising for Meat Church. I just happened to choose those products to try and they were delicious and worked well.
