Pros: smoked turkey smelled & looked OK
Cons: smoked turkey not fully cooked
Here's what we wrote to Famous Dave's:
"We pre-ordered one of your 10-12 lb. - $34.95+- SMOKED TURKEYS for Thanksgiving... picked it up at 8PM the night before (at your Hillsborough, NJ restaurant). The family was looking forward to it as a few older folks remembered eating smoked turkey "on the farm way back when". Thanksgiving day, it was re-heated in the oven as instructed at 250 degrees for an hour or more in the aluminum tray it came in. At the table, I started carving -- ONLY TO BE GREETED BY BLOOD at the joints (legs, wings). The turkey WAS NOT FULLY COOKED!!! Needless to say... it set the atmosphere back abit, and we all disappeared for the 50 or so minutes it took to cook it properly. VERY VERY DISAPPOINTED."
Bottom line... we won't order from them again... certainly not items that are the centerpiece of our meal (like our thanksgiving turkey)... unless of course we can tell by looking at the item (e.g. ribs) that it is in fact cooked properly
