It is a deboned turkey stuffed with a deboned duck stuffed with a deboned chicken stuffed with cajun stuffing.

Have you tried it? If so, is it good? Sounds a little rich to me.

Rich and one huge PITA to make!
I might order it at a restaurant, but not make it myself...

There are any number of places online that you can order them from. They can be quite tasty and a real novelty for those that have never seen or eaten one.

But make one? No Way!!!!

Brian is right. I wouldn't want to make one. I am going to order and just see what it's like. Sounds very unusual. Thanks for the help and links.

We've tried it twice. Once, ordered from an online source and the other we bought at Kings Supermarket (frozen both times). Both times they ended up tasting mostly like ham because of all the different flavor combinations. We didn't feel they were worth the price and were more a novelty than anything else.

I never tried it, but always thought, why ruin a good duck?
The best part of a duck is the crispy skin...

I've made it - followed Paul Prudhommes 6 + page recipe pretty much exactly. BTW the > 6 pages is just the Turducken. There are also three different dressings, and a Sweet Potato Eggplant gravy that takes about 4 hours to cook. I'm a pretty experienced cook, nevertheless it was quite a bit of work. We boned birds, prepped stocks and made cornbread during the week, pretty much worked on it all day on a Saturday, cooked it overnight (it cooks 12-13 hours in a 190 degree oven) made the gravy Sunday morning and ate around noon Sunday. Everyone that was there still talks about the meal and it was, IMO, wonderful. But not for the faint of heart.
