I say it every year - at some point, turkey is selling for so cheap you feel like an asshole if you don't buy it.  Fifty cents a pound right now - a sixth the cost of ground beef.  Last year or the year before it got down to 19 cents a pound, which is so cheap that even if all you do with it is make stock, you've saved money.

So right now?  Right now I have drumsticks and a turkey neck in the smoker, to make smoked turkey broth for things like greens, wild rice, or hominy.  I've got turkey thighs in a casserole dish full of fat, which will slowly cook overnight until they're confit.  And of course, I'll have a ton of turkey stock.
