Since we're on the topic of poultry, and with Thanksgiving right around the corner, I thought I'd make my initial post about Tasty-Q Bbq. Located on Crenshaw, about a 1/2 mile south of the 10 freeway, Tasty-Q is relatively well known for their bbq. Some would argue that Leo's (now known as something I can't remember) is superior, and that's quite possibly a valid argument. HOWEVER...Tasty Q's is one up on that joint in the sense that they offer an additional menu item....FRIED TURKEY!. For the low low price of $2/lb, you can have them deep fry a turkey for you. Now keep in mind that fried turkey is NOTHING like fried chicken. It's not breaded, and it's definitely not as greasy. Fried turkey tastes similar to roasted turkey, the only difference (and this is a big one) is that even the white meat is REALLY moist. It has something to do /w cooking it much more quickly in the deep fryer than in the oven, but I'm not a culinary scientist. Just a guy /w a healthy appetite. Anyway, give em a couple days notice if you want to use this option for Thanksgiving, as I'm sure they'll have a quite a demand for this tasty spin on an old favorite.

turkey is not usually high on my list of edible animals, but you're really selling it. It sounds quite tasty.

actully, the $2 a pound is with the customer supplying his/her own bird.... still it beats doing it at home where you gotta go out and get five gallons of oil and then worry about the hazardous waste fees for disposing of the oil..... the best deal on the Tasty Q menu for my money is their pork neck bones with rice and beans
