It feels as though we’ve waited forever for college football to start, and finally the wait is over! Check out our tailgating page for recipes that are sure to become fan favorites. As an added bonus, the day before Labor Day is National Bacon Day and we don’t know about you, but we like putting bacon on anything and everything, so we’ll definitely be celebrating that.

We're trying to reduce the amount of frozen food in our freezers (which resulted from me buying my first Egg a few years ago and then going crazy buying meat everytime I saw a good deal :P ) So I thawed out a 17 1/4 lb turkey that I actually had gotten for free with some "bonus points" at Giant, seasoned it and cooked it in my MBGE I keep up at my hunting camp. It was a tight fit, but it turned out great.

It took over 15 minutes per pound because even though I took the bird out of the freezer 7 days earlier, it was still slightly frozen on the inside when I went to cook it. :angry: When I stuck the Polder in it, it was 32* deep in the breast, but I was committed to the cook, so I went with it. ;)
Thanks for looking.
