Note from the
Our Smoked Turkeys and Hams have been fully cooked
and smoked using all natural Central Texas Post Oak Wood. The
smoking process enables poultry meat to retain its natural red
pigment often associated with undercooked meat. Don't be alarmed by
this color, as it is a natural color and safe to eat.
