I have smoked turkey...

running out my ears! My other half's ex came over last night with the kids and they brought with them a smoked turkey they'd cooked and salad makings. The ex didn't think they'd eat it all and they wanted to share with us. She's a very nice ex, by the way! So, we all had turkey and then I de-boned the monster and put the meat in bags in the fridge. She didn't want to take any home with her, though, so we kept it all.

I really enjoy smoked turkey but we don't have a smoker and the price of pre-smoked birds is too high for us so I haven't bought one in years. Now I have a goodly amount of the stuff.

What do you do with smoked turkey leftovers? It's great in beans but I'd love some more ideas on how to use this bird.

Smoked turkey almost tastes like ham, so I would use it in green beans like you suggested, in scalloped potatoes, turkey salad, turkey sandwiches, and maybe a smoked turkey chowder of some sort....with potatoes and corn?

Good ideas, thanks! Hmmm, potatoes and corn. I'll remember that the next time we get some smoked turkey. The bird I had is gone already! =;-0

It is good in beans too as a flavoring. Gives the whole pot of beans a smokey flavor.
