Sonya and I were thinking about taking a couple of turduckens home for the families for Thanksgiving. A turdecken is a chicken stuffed inside a duck stuffed inside a big old turkey. Various kinds of tasty dressing are inserted between the birds, and did I mention the birds are boneless?

The thing is, though, that every turducken I've been able to find is sold frozen, and would need some heavy-duty thawing and cooking once we got back to Memphis. Who's got that kind of time? But no one seems to sell them pre-cooked and ready to travel.

Perhaps it's for the best. How wise could it be to eat anything with "turd" in its name?
