THAT THERE IS MEAT:
The Midwood Smokehouse Whole smoked turkey
($ 70); several locations
It’s your holiday gathering day and you don’t have time to keep a turkey in the oven. The pro gesture: let one of the best poultry suppliers of the season take the lead. FS Food Group sources its smoked turkey from Joyce Farms in Winston-Salem. Turkeys range from 12 to 14 pounds; for reference, a pound feeds two or three. Other meat options from Midwood include smoked turkey breast; spiral-cut boneless ham with brown sugar glaze; brisket; Caroline’s ground pork; pulled chicken barbecue; and half a smoked chicken.
