I have been banned from cooking that day. That is the wife's baby.

I'm going to smoke a bird to bring over to my M-I-L's...

I imagine we'll have a smoked bird, a baked bird and a fried bird.

I am trying to get the lead on making the turkey from my MIL...:boxing:

Either way I am seriously kicking up my sweet potato and sausage casserole (it actually is more of a souffle) by smoking the fatty with the onion and pepper inside along with the split sweet potatoes. Totally re invented!:shock:

This place is a horrible influence.:becky:

I have no clue. It's way too early for me to be thinking about Thanksgiving!

She won't let you cook the bird??

A buddy of mines wife won't let him but it's that she doesn't trust him not ruing it! lol

ATLSean 10-30-2013 01:14 PM

A couple of turkeys will be smoked, everyone else is handling the sides. I might sneak in a rack of ribs just because!

joshcary 10-30-2013 01:47 PM

Other than a smoked bird, the most important dish will be the quinoa stuffing w/ apples, cranberries, and sweet potatoes!

After baking the turkey for years, SWIMBO said a week before Thanksgiving about 10 years ago, "I want you to fry the turkey", so I did-for about 6 years; and then I smoked one (test project) on a Traeger a few weeks before Thanksgiving in 2008. A turkey has not been fried or baked at our house since. (Turkey fryer for $ale).
Smokin’ 2 for the family this year and who knows how many for others.

Menu (subject to change at SWIMBO's direction)
Smoked turkeys
Corned ham (fresh ham which is salt only cured for 7-11 days) boiling is the preferred cooking method as to save the pot lick'r for cooking a specific green leaf vegatable
Green Bean (no I can't say it, not going to say it, not going to eat it any more, please don't make it, soup & canned GB's with canned fried onions, YUCK)
Sweet potatoes made some way or 2 usually with a topping (crumble)made from brown sugar and pecans
Yukon Gold Potatoes made some way or 2 (mashed, whipped, Bill Graham recipe, garlic'y, etc. cooks choice)
Gravy (no giblets, please)
Collards (cooked in the corned ham water, yum)
Lots of Deviled Eggs
Another vegetable dish (sister's creation)
And yet another vegetable dish (daughter's creation)
Dressing (don't stuff turkeys, so it's not stuffing, pan baked dressing)
More gravy
Yeast rolls, butter and more butter
Cranberry sauce
Southern Table Wine
Pass the gravy please
And desserts...
Pecan pie, pumpk’n pie, a fruit pie (homemade Honey Crisp Apple preferred), and a triple vanilla Dream Factory© cheese cake which was kindly given as a team gift at a BBQ contest. Forget the cheese cake; it may not last until Thanksgiving, though its frozen, you know a little frostbite on the tongue never heat anyone.

For the past several years we have gone into central GA for TD with our niece and her family.
I used to cook the Turkey, but...
Each year it got more and more difficult due to "logistics" and timing of the meal.
It came apart last year when the Nephew In Law bought a 21 # Butterball and I only had the roaster available with no time available in the oven to finish it! :icon_pissed
Underdone hunk of crap!
And, to top it off, his family does not even like dark meat... So why in the hell are we cooking a whole bird????

I told Mrs Kapn "NO MORE"!
I told her that NIL could get off his ass, stop watching the games on the big screen, and cook for his family like any self respecting DAD would do.

Fast forward.
I am now smoking 2 Turkey Breasts on the PG a couple of days in advance and transporting them cold to be reheated there!
Gonna due a couple of Drummies, just for me!

Gonna be a hell of a lot better than I could do there from scratch! 8)

Take that.......
