Seems there are a lot of possible tasty combinations. Here's my thankful offering to start things off:

Pelky.

Pork tenderloin stuffed inside of Elk meat stuffed inside of a turkey.

I never heard of turducken until I read about it on the Dope... but this thread reminds me that I have seen it in the wild, so to speak, in Toronto! I was on the subway going home and someone else had a big sealed bag labeled 'Turducken'. It must have been a kit.

I admit that 'pelky' rolls of the tongue better than 'turducken' though. They both sound tasty.

My SIL got a terducken for Thanksgiving this year. My daughter will be in attendance. I cannot wait to hear how delicious it is -- assuming they all survive the experience of that rich a main course on top of the rest of T'day dinner, that is!

Ten bird roast (River Cottage Style):

Woodcock, inside a Partridge, inside a Pigeon, inside a Pheasant, inside a Guinea fowl, inside a Mallard, inside a Chicken, inside a Aylesbury Duck, inside a Goose, inside a Turkey. All the birds have a stuffing of minced pork, goose fat, herbs and mace inside them as well.

As frightening as that is...

Try the 17 layer version! (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Turducken#Variations)

There are several versions of baked camel that include stuffing it with some combination of lamb, turkey, chicken, carp, seagull eggs, rice, almonds, pine nuts, pistachios, and cooking in a pit for two days.

I think this is called a "Bedoin Wedding Feast".

But, then, until now I thought Turducken was just a brand of canned cat food. In fact, I can't stop marveling that people can sell a food whose name starts with "Turd", and at a premium price to boot.

Anything will do. Just stop putting that name into thread titles, please. Everyone realises how disgusting it it to read in threads about food, right? .. right?

I wonder... is it like Saki in that it's best served at 98.6 degrees? That might be a little disturbing; someone to hand you a plate of turducken and whisper "Here... it's still at body temp."
