Good morning and thank you for your question. Turkey smoked at home should be treated exactly like cooked turkey. Today, freeze your leftovers, labeling air-tight packages with the product and date. We had a large turkey - we made and froze the following: Turkey Stock, Turkey vegetable soup, sliced and diced turkey. According to the USDA guidelines, you should freeze your smoked turkey today.

If you have other questions, please feel free to contact me. scraig@wsu.edu.

Happy holidays.
