    Let's talk turkey!

    What are you cooking? What are you doing for Thanksgiving?

    We're leaning towards deep-frying a small turkey this year. I tried it a few years ago with some success....tastes great, cooks faster.

    Watching football of course and then taking the family to a friend's house for evening dessert and the late NFL game.

    Share your plans and cough up some recipes, you turkeys!

    Brining the Turkey overnight and putting in the smoker.

    Way too long to paste, but here's the recipe I'm following:

    However, I like to use mesquite/hickory for the smoke wood.

    Family visiting arriving tomorrow night so it should be a good one.

    Turkey is the second course for us. First is a nice pasta with meat gravy. I'll throw some pics up Thursday when it's all on the table, it's a sight to see!

    Stream, even though you had some sucess on the last one, look up the saftey warnings before you do it again. Potential backyard nightmare there.

    women should make the turkey.

    men should get loaded and watch football.


    the pussification of America goes on.

    Us too. Usually lasagna or stuffed shells with meatballs, sausage, and veal braciole. Before the pasta course though, we have a soup, lobster bisque this year, followed by a few apps like stuffed cherrystones and Nantucket bay scallops wrapped in bacon. Entire meal takes about 4 hours from start to finish, with breaks in between for expresso and annisette, poker, and cigars.

    fixed :P

    making a turkey breast in the oven (haven't tried fried turkey yet), because it's just the two of us

    husband has to go into hospital on Friday for an out-patient thing, so no Thanksgiving drinking, though we both might be watching football with a hangover on Thursday :D

    Does frying a turkey add a lot of fat, like french fries? I never had one, would like to try it sometime, but I avoid fatty foods.

    I'm brining our 23 lb turkey tomorow morning for a good 24 hours then making my Mom's sausage stuffing.

    That's all I do, everyone makes everything else.

    Have 4 bottles of Beaujolais Nouveau, 2 bottles of Pinot Noir and a bottle of Woodford Reserve.

    Yep, we start with lasagna too. Also stuffed mushrooms/artichokes in addition to all the traditional fixings.

    Just joking there. We did order the uncooked bird from Whole Foods, get a little seasoning there too. The wife and MIL do the rest, always a lot of Italian to go with the traditional fare.
