Nobody smokes a turkey like the experts at the famous Willie Bird Ranch in Sonoma County, California, where the free-range birds are raised on the tastiest, healthiest natural grains. Entirely free of preservatives, our whole, bone-in turkey is rubbed with a brown-sugar cure and spiked with garlic, then slow-smoked to succulent perfection. The mild, moist meat has a spectacular smoky flavor and is delicious hot or cold.

- About Willie Bird Turkeys
The Benedetti family started raising turkeys in Northern California’s Sonoma County back in 1948. In 1963, Willie Benedetti developed the formula for the now-famous Willie Bird Turkey, which the family raises in the rolling, oak-studded hills just east of Santa Rosa. The birds roam freely around the grassy acreage, tended and nurtured by Willie, his brother Riley and their cousin Rocky Koch. The best we’ve tasted, Willie-Bird free-range turkeys are raised with care, fed only the best natural grains and vegetable proteins, and never treated with hormones or antibiotics.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MarlaB from Delicious! This is the second time that I ordered the Willie Bird smoked turkey for Thanksgiving. My husband and I usually do not eat white meat as we find it too dry, but that was not the case with the Willie Bird smoked turkey. We ate both the dark and white meat and both were moist, juicy and absolutely delicious. I will be ordering it again next year for Thanksgiving. If you like smoked turkey then you will enjoy this as much as we did.Date published: 2019-01-12Rated 5 out of 5 by Pattijom from Excellent Smoked Turkey My first smoked turkey and it was delicious! It was moist and meaty. The drumsticks were even terrific! It tasted great even with gravy! Highly recommend. I have bought one for my mother in law ( whom I adore), and will buy one again for me.Date published: 2016-11-29
I have ordered the other smoked turkey many times and loved it. Does anyone know if the preservative-free one tastes much different? We love the "regular" one so much, I don't want to change the flavor but skipping preservatives sounds healthier. Advice?Hi Hosting Xmas, The preservative-free turkey tastes very similar to the "regular" one.Date published: 2019-01-18
