    We cubed them, marinated them, breaded them, and put them in the air fryer the other night. Pretty dang good!

    I will smoke the whole bird for 6 hours at 250. The breast meat is tender and super juicy, but the thighs will be undercooked. We will eat a couple meals of breast, and then simmer the rest to make ala king or soup. Or I'll debone the bird, strip and deep fry the breast, and smoke the legs, thighs, and wings for other recipes. I like to smoke wild turkey because it really doesn't have much natural flavor, and the smoke gives it some.

    My comments are geared toward one of our mountain birds, no farm fields to eat from, above 8k and running for their life all the time.
    We breast out the bird into cutlets, flour, egg, then into Panko with salt and pepper. The cutlets are hand sized and rolled flat with a rolling pin before dredging. Lightly fried in a skillet with a little peanut oil. Not covered in oil, just enough in the pan to crisp. I always make a garlic, capers pasta with it then sprinkle a little fresh lemon juice on top.

    Dark meat I bone out and make jerky. I use my my elk spices/cure for that. I have not yet got any recipe to make the dark meat edible in opinion. ....or just wasn't hungry enough.

    Smoked dark meat carnitas tacos is one of the best wild game meals I've had. Roasting wild birds has always been a disappointment so I make Yeager schnitzel similar to the recipe on the MeatEater website with the white meat.

    I've done two wild turkeys in my Masterbuilt electric smoker and I really liked how they turned out. No a wild bird will never be as tender as a domestic turkey, but the meat was very juicy and tasted fantastic. Apple is hard to go wrong with in the smoker for birds. Maple is also very good. It almost imparts a slightly sweet taste to the meat.
