    Hahahaha…this is like my family!  My sister always picks at the neck, and sometimes my dad will also have some.  My grandma eats the giblets (I think they are called that).  No one has to fight them for those!  I don’t like either, so I stick to the white meat myself 🙂

    I’m pretty sure we use the neck and giblets to make the gravy, so no one fights over them (instead, we all just fight over the gravy!) 🙂

    I didn’t know people ate it! I use it to make a stock for the gravy but then it goes in the garbage!

    Do you roast it with the Turkey????

    I use it to make gravy, but it totally grosses me out! I now only buy turkey breasts so i don’t have to deal with turkey balls, turkey heart, turkey liver, or turkey neck

    Bletch, lady, bletch!

    This isn’t weird to my family at all!!!! Personally I don’t eat it cause my mom always has dibs!  I guess cause I’ve never really had any I don’t have any plans to start now.

    I usually use it to make the gravy. I boil it along with the giblets to make some good stock for the gravy. Then I use the meat from it and add it to the gravy. Makes great flavoring!

    LOL. So funny! No I do not eat turkey neck. I feed it to my dog though, hehe. Does it taste like dark meat? I always imagined it to taste like organ meat, although now that I think of it, it doesn’t make much sense. Does it have alot of vertabrae in it?! Tell me about the turkey neck, I need to know!!!

    LOL at the longest spinal cord piece… I don’t think I could participate in that contest!  I’d use it for gravy, but that’s about it!
