Of all the weird hybrid foods we have had to stomach, the turducken is one of the most exhausting. Basically it’s a chicken inside of a duck, inside of a turkey; and in this episode of Prime Time, the guys are going to try and come up with their own version.
Hosts Ben Turley and Brent Young have spent plenty of hours experimenting at their Brooklyn butcher shop the Meat Hook, whether it’s creating a sausage to resemble a breakfast sandwich, or assembling a beef porchetta. But this time they’re stumped by the turducken method. Still, they’re going to try stuffing a large duck with pheasant, squab, quail, and offal sausage. “I don’t think this [experiment] has helped me understand why turducken exists,” says Turley. “The sum is not greater than its parts,” echoes Young.
