Bartlett Sausage Available This Weekend

If you miss Bartlett Sausage, it will be available this Saturday and Sunday, November 22 & 23. Based on a decades-old recipe, the sausage disappeared from the scene last year when Perez Barbecue closed. But limited quantities are available this weekend at 1022 West Clark in Bartlett this weekend.

Turkey Production Down Slightly

The United States Department of Agriculture anticipates turkey production this year will be about 235 million birds, down a little from last year’s 240,000,000. America is the world’s chief exporter of turkeys, and also the world’s chief consumer. According to the National Turkey Federation, the average American last year consumed 16 pounds of turkey, which is almost twice as much as the 8.1 pounds in 1970. October wholesale prices for turkeys jumped 12 percent above last year going from 72 cents a pound to 81 cents frozen wholesale turkey prices are expected to be between $1.12 and $1.16 a pound compared to $1.05 last year, according to the USDA. Leading turkey producing states last year were Minnesota at 44 million, North Carolina with 34 million, and Arkansas with 28 million (Texas did not make the top 10).
