Pre-order your Cajun Fried Turkey  

Dodie’s is accepting orders now for plump and juicy, 12-lb. deep fried Cajun-infused turkeys~ only $69.99! These mouth-watering gobblers sell out each year, because they are made with all the love and flavor you’ve come to expect from Dodie’s in Rockwall.  Turkeys are brined for just the right amount of time, then injected with Dodie’s special blend of Cajun seasoning and spices and fried to perfection in peanut oil.
