Thanksgiving Turkey - 4 Ways

By Jack Beighle
Thanksgiving Turkey - 4 Ways

Greg Gunthorp, a fourth generation farmer, has been raising turkeys on open pasture for over 20 years, and after visiting Greg's farm in Lagrange, Indiana, we knew we had found something special. For the second consecutive Thanksgiving, we are proud to be partnering with Gunthorp Farms to bring you the best-tasting, pasture-raised turkeys. After last year's success and rave customer reviews, we knew we'd be back for more.

Gunthorp Farms' birds are so flavorful and juicy that the simplest of preparations is all that is required, but to ensure that your Thanksgiving is as successful and delicious as possible, we've asked some of our friends to share their favorite turkey recipes.

A 24-hour brine + a bed of bacon are the keys to this over-the-top turkey.

Steak Holder Ken says, "I have tried turkey's cooked many different ways and hands down this is the best one I've ever tasted!"

Pear-Brined Turkey with Thyme, Garlic & Sage

Inspired by Country Living, we've upped the herbs and added a serious, borderline medicinal dose of garlic, which we can't get enough of.
