Naturally Smoked Whole Turkey:
If you’re looking for a simple holiday or special-occasion solution, try our Diestel Uncured Smoked Whole Body Turkey. It’s fully cooked, so all you have to do is warm it in the oven. With a rich flavor from the hardwoods we slowly smoke it over, it is delicious, tender, and has our signature old-fashioned turkey flavor. For a great recipe, check out our Naturally Smoked Diestel Turkey with a Honey Glaze, and just to show you how easy it is to prepare, we have a cooking video for you from Heidi Diestel.

Tender and juicy with real old-fashioned flavor:
Our smoked turkey is consistently better – tender and juicy with that real old-fashioned turkey flavor.
Our smoked turkeys enjoy the freedom of being slow- grown in the clean Sierra Nevada Foothills with individual care, where they are raised longer to develop flavor naturally.
Fed a low- fat vegetarian diet free of growth stimulants and hormones:
Our smoked turkeys are fed a wholesome low-fat vegetarian diet of quality grains and soybeans milled on the Diestel ranch and, as always, completely free of growth stimulants and hormones.
Our smoked turkeys provide excellent value with more meat, less fat and less water than other turkeys.
Family ranch since 1949:
All these delicious turkeys are grown and processed directly to you by us – the Diestel Ranch. Our ranch is family owned and operated, since 1949, and we’re proud to be one of the last small, family owned turkey grower-processors in the United States.
