I smoked 6 turkeys and two hams last night. I got to bed sometime after 2am. By 8:30 this morning all but one of the birds was picked up by it's owner. Nap at noon dinner at six.

Today's menu will include:
Smoked Turkey
Smoked Ham
Bread stuffing
Sauteed green beans with garlic butter and almonds
Roasted Delicatta squash with butter
Butter smashed potatoes
Crusty Rustica 7 grain bread
Cranberry sauce
Apple pie
Vanilla ice cream

That should be enough for 3 people.

Where do I start....

At midnight I started my fire to get my pit warmed up. A few hours after that (and a quick nap) I built my main fire and put my flavorful brined turkey on the pit at 4:30AM. Took another nap. Had a little fire issue but was able to get it under control and maintained my fire until the 14 lbs bird was done.

Now, I have some quail wrapped with bacon on the pit. (looking forward to taste those!)

Wife and fam is working on breakfast and various side items. My dad (other side of town) is frying a second turkey. My mother is making cornbread dressing and various side items.

We all plan to meet at my house and have a fantastic dinner. The following is the entire menu:

Smoked Turkey
Fried Turkey
Smoked Bacon Wrapped Quail
Homemade Cornbread Dressing
Homemade Bread Dressing
Sweet Potato Casserole
Mashed Potatoes
Pea Salad
Green Bean Casserole
Cranberry Sauce
Cider Glazed Carrots
Prosciutto wrapped Asparagus
Stuffed Jalapeno Peppers (pickled & fresh)
Shrimp & Corn Bisque
Corn Casserole
Yeast Rolls
Pecan Pie
Chocolate Bourbon Pecan Pie
Pumpkin Pie
Chocolate Pie
Ice Tea

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

I injected a 6.5# turkey breast with half & half mixture of white wine and butter, then whisked in Plowboy's Yard Bird Rub. I rubbed it down with more rub, then put it on a vertical roaster. Set the roaster inside a cast iron skillet and put it on the platesetter in the egg. The egg's rockin' along at 275* with no problems, and is almost done.

The wife & MIL are making sides, but I'm doing the stuffing. Chocolate pie for dessert.

Happy Thanksgiving..........

Started off with some breasts in the BDS



Did salmon in the Egg and sharp cheddar in the Big Chief



Did a number on my bird, deboning the thigh, seasoned with herb butter, will go very traditional on the breast and will make the wings spicy.



I have 2 fatties on the Egg and getting 2 pork tenderloins prepped with an Asian cherry glaze.

Sides are squash/sweet tater/carrot combo, green beans, mashed taters, three bread dressing and...for dessert key lime pie
