Roast TurkeyBig Lou’s Butcher Shop has extended the deadline for ordering its famous Turduckens and delicious “Take & Bake” dinners to Friday, December 20th.  Orders placed before close on Friday can be picked up Christmas Eve.

Big Lou’s is offering two styles of Turducken this year. Along with the full three-bird Turkducken (14-20lb), a boneless 4 or 8-lb Turducken roast is also available. Made from a local turkey breast stuffed with signature Big Lou’s Turducken sausage, it’s a great way to celebrate Southern-style Christmas with a smaller group.

The Big Lou’s “Take and Bake” Turkey Dinner ($180) feeds up to 10 and includes a  fully dressed 15lb Free Run Rossdown Farms turkey, Italian sausage stuffing, all the sides and sauces, and a pumpkin pie from Cadeaux Bakery. Just pop the turkey in the over on Christmas day and warm the sides and you’re ready to feast!

Big Lou’s Butcher Shop is located at 269 Powell St. Free delivery in the Vancouver area is available on orders over $100. Call 604-566-9229 for more details.
