The turducken - a chicken stuffed inside a duck stuffed inside a turkey - was a Louisiana specialty before spreading across the South. Now it's arrived in Western New York, at Camillo's Sloan Supermarket.
For years, Western New Yorkers interested in the classic Southern three-bird feast have been limited to frozen versions shipped at great cost from great distances. Now they have a local option, which I'll explore a bit more in an upcoming article. The birds, mostly deboned, plus stuffing, make for a turducken that starts at 15 pounds. Camillo's has them for $3.99 a pound.
If you're interested, you need to order at least three days in advance. You can reach the market at 896-8982; its address is 494 Reiman St., Sloan.
Thanks to alert reader Sylvia Volk for the tip.
