    Unfortunately, nothing.  We are going to a catered family Thanksgiving at a church (it burns!).  Also, it is the mother-in-law's 90th birthday on Friday.  Catering by Rouses, will probably be mediocre but less terrible than the SIL's food, she likes to cook Turkey to 200F.
    This is my signature line just so you're not confused.  Love me or hate me, I am forum Marmite.

  • Non traditional here. On thanksgiving doing oysters, clams, and smoked salmon plus adult beverages per my Asian inlaws request and I am 100% on board. 
    Friday doing a more traditional Thanksgiving with my dad ,minus a turkey. Will be using my green egg for ham (ha ha).  
    My entire family agrees that turkey is highly over rated. 
    Never bad but never great either. 
    Happy thanksgiving everyone!!!

  • Gbaby’s mommy is working but she requested ham, with grilled pineapple, and the normal sides. We will take her a big plate to the hospital.
  • Turkey on the egg, mashed potatoes, sweet potato casserole, corn casserole, broccoli salad, cranberry sauce, gravy and pumpkin pecan pie. I'm doing it all tomorrow. It'll be a fun marathon.
    Wisconsin, lbge, MM, kab, pig tail flippers, bear claws, and more rubs than I will admit to.
  • Leftover turkey made into turkey chili verde. Our big get together was Sunday. I did Egg a 15 lb bird spatchcocked indirect with mad Max. I also made SGH’s appetizer. The rest of the clan’s contributions were to numerous to mention except for a cousin’s fried fig hand pies which was the best of the bunch.
  • how do you suggest cooking 5# turkey breast ,1 drumstick, 1 thigh, on large egg?

    Wet brined, spatchcocked, cherry and pecan smoked, on the egg. Everything els is superfluous.

  • Wife and I are taking it easy at home today since I’m “working”. We have some salmon to cook on a plank for dinner. Then I’ll be throwing on a brisket to smoke overnight for the UT-Tech game tomorrow night. 

    Happy Turkey Day all, wishing you a safe and happy one with family and friends!
  • I have the Turkey pout of the brine and injected under the skin with butter and a little rub on it. It is now in the Roaster cooking. The sides will be Sweet Potato Casserole, Green Bean Casserole, Scalloped Corn, Pistachio Jello Salad, Mashed Potatoes, Gravy, Homemade Dressing and Homemade Dinner Rolls. Dessert is Apple Pie with Ice Cream and Pumpkin Pie with Whipped Cream. Busy couple days but it is all worth it.

    One more nontraditional.  12-lb brisket (sitting at 194.6 right now), homemade potato salad, cornbread dressing w/gravy (gravy's a vegetable, right?) and buttered rolls; pecan pie for dessert/if there's room.
    I've been egging for 5, 6 years now, mostly have it down but every once in awhile She just will NOT behave, and She was a beeotch today.  Ran out of fuel at 0500 this morning (yes, that part was operator error) but after reloading, lighting, letting her get back up to temp, she held for a bit then started going out (this was with an already-warm egg and protein).  Lit again, took her up to 300 before shutting back down, and she sat at 250 for a bit, then cooled down to 175  again.  Opened back up, used a blower, back up to 250, and now dropping again, but the meats' just about there.  I'd kick her butt but that would hurt.  
    Live fast, die young, and leave a well-marbled corpse.
