Big day of cooking

A big group of us with young kids and no close extended families decided to have a big thanksgiving get together, so my wife and I decided to do our traditional thanksgiving meal today. Been chopping and prepping, Egg cleaned and loaded topped off with fresh lump. Bloody Mary in hand. Should be a fun day.

    Like the okra in the BM. Did it come from a jar that looks similar to this?

    Well, "spa-Peggy" is kind of like spaghetti. I'm not sure what Peggy does different, if anything. But it's the one dish she's kind of made her own.

    Don't know about the cooks, but that's a gangbusters looking beverage!

    Have a great time.

    I'm jealous. Cooking for Thanksgiving is so much fun, and I look forward to it the whole year.

    Have a blast!

    CPARK, I'm not a turkey expert at all, but from what I have been reading, the right temperature to pull is 157.  While resting, it will get to 165.  If you pull at 165, it will get to 170+ and be dryer than what you might want.  Again, I am not a turkey expert.

    @Village Idiot how long do you let it rest? I like crisp skin so I wasn't planning on tenting.

    From my research, the crisp skin will come from cooking at 425 for one hour, then reducing the temp to 325.  Here's where I'm getting my info.

    We did a practice bird a couple weeks back w the same rub but no injection...was so so moist...if I recall I pulled at 160 and didn't rest at all...the skin wasn't as crisp as I would have liked but the bird was pretty awesome.

    I got called in to work at 5:30 this morning (wasn't sure I could drive after drowning my sorrows after seeing the sabres beat the buds) and just got home. I'll trade you my aches for yours straight up.
