Turkey Smoke

“Where there’s smoke, there’s turkey!”

Through Turkey Smoke events, NTF is showing everyone how turkey naturally fits into barbecue competitions, no matter how you slice it. Our goal with building Turkey Smoke and taking it nationwide is to increase demand for NTF members’ products by creating a new market and introducing potential customers and barbecue enthusiasts to this protein option. From the teams competing to the lucky passersby sampling, we have heard great feedback on the potential for turkey in barbecue. It’s safe to say we’re hungry for more!

This year, NTF also set out in partnership with the 2019 Great American Cookout Tour (GAC) to elevate the presence of turkey in barbecue competitions across the country. As an official GAC sponsor, we partnered with the Kansas City Barbecue Society to spread the word about the versatility of turkey in barbecuing, share grilling tips and serve up delicious turkey samples at stops around this country this summer. Whether your taste buds prefer smoky, spicy or smothered in sauce, we’re ready to bring turkey to the table!

We have an exciting list of Turkey Smoke events this year, including our third visit to the American Royal World Series of BBQ! Below are the remaining Turkey Smoke events for 2019: 

Join us on the road as we serve up delicious barbecue and pitmasters compete for the Turkey Smoke trophy. We’d love to see you at one of our many stops along the way!
