The best turkey farmer ever feeds his Thanksgiving birds beer

Turkey farmer Joe Morette knows the ultimate secret to creating a Thanksgiving turkey and no, it isn't love or something else stupid.

It's beer.

Just to be clear: Joe's not suggesting you bathe your uncooked turkey in a tub of Red Dog. Ever since one of the birds accidentally knocked over a beer, started drinking it, and seemed to like it back in 1993, Morette has been giving his turkeys beer, and he says it yields a more flavorful and juicy meat. Plus the extra carbs and calories make the birds plumper, so there's more to go around the table. Don't believe him? Then ask the man's loyal customers, who've been shunning store-bought birds in favor of Morette's Thanksgiving turkeys for years.
