Every year Oprah Winfrey picks her favorite things on a very popular episode of her talk show. Today, one of those favorite things, is made in East Texas. Everyone in the audience got a Greenberg Turkey, with Oprah calling it the best smoked turkey she's ever had. Smoked to perfection in their Tyler plant. The national exposure is sure to keep the Greenberg family busy. They will be open 7 days a week from now through Christmas. The fully cooked, ready to serve turkeys have been a holiday tradition in East Texas for over 64 years. A festive atmosphere at Greenberg this afternoon. They had a party, complete with plenty of Greenberg smoked turkey sandwiches, of course. Then, it was quickly back to work, taking orders. The company plans to ship around 175,000 turkeys this holiday season. At one point during the show, oprah said "thank you Sam Greenberg".
"We're humbled and overwhelmed at the same time thinking about the business it can generate having national exposure," said Greenberg, "but, we're... I've got great employees all through this room and I've got the greatest customers in the world."
