Default Anyone make wild turkey poppers?

Breast out awild turkey breast. Thin slice cross grain the breast. Wrap a small stick of cheese and a small stick of jalipeno with a turkey breast slice and then wrap that with bacon. A wood toothpick stuck through it holds it together as you cook on a bbq grill.

We always save a couple turkey breasts to grill like this. Of course my family kills 8-10 wild turkeys a year. Between Florida,Georgia,Kentucky,& N. Dakota we kill quite a few.

And added bonus is a turkey is a lot liter to Cary out of the woods than a deer or elk.

Ill give that a try. My wife and I usually get 4 turkeys a year. Usually breast them and fry them in strips. Grind the thighs in to a burger or sausage. Turkeys get a bum rap a lot of times about being table fare. All in how you cook them. They are very lean and dry out easily. I have tried to roast them and deep fry them, but always came out pretty much a failure. Fried or grilled low and slow is the answer.

I smoke them for awhile,then finish them up in a cooking bag in the oven. Don't poke a hole in the bag,that way all the moisture stays in the bag.

Wild Turkey errr, turkeys taste so much better than a store bought turkey, even a Butterball turkey.

Most store bought turkeys are inject with a self basting solution. A wild turkey dosent have that itís all natural. Tastes better to me but requires a different cooking method.

Im not a fan of wild turkey. There all over the place here and I rarely shoot one. Id take a store turkey hands down over a wild one. Ive tried cooking them every way its been suggested and it just doesn't do it for me. Now this recipe has potential. Id bet the peppers and cheese hide the strange taste of a wild turkey that I don't care for. Right now the few I shoot just get ground up and thrown in with the venison burger or sausage pile.
