    Nice @The Cen-Tex Smoker.  Meat with sides of meat.

    We finally ate. Sorry for the fork 
    At midnight?

    Those lollipops look damn good.

    The level of effort for those lollipops is impressive.  I have only wrestled with the chix (minor league).  That plate is a great way to celebrate Thanksgiving. 
    BTW- Fork for the win!  
    Louisville; Rolling smoke in the neighbourhood. # 38 for the win.  Life is too short for light/lite beer!  Seems I'm livin in a transitional period.

    I bought some cheep turkey legs back in college, to strip off the meat for a soup, stew, stuffed pasta or something.  It took me all afternoon, wrestling with all the sinews and gristle, and to this day I will not touch a turkey leg.  I'd rather become a vegan.

    I am surprised at the prime rib offerings.  I get that is a big deal at Christmas but thought turkey (good, bad or indifferent) ruled the 4th Thursday in November.

    Happy Thanksgiving-a bit early (EST).
    I bought and cooked much more than the needs of our meal. Prime Rib French Dips are a favorite of mine. All that’s needed is hoagies. Had plenty of aujus and rib meet left. Better leftover use than Turkey if you ask me. That said, I do enjoy Turkey tacos.

    @Acn - that's a fine looking plate.

    The dressing/stuffing looks wonderful. Next year, I'm going to focus on making truly outstanding stuffing. It may be the best part of Thanksgiving (after gravy, of course).

    Thanks @caliking and @stillh2oegger!

    I agree dressing is probably the best part of dinner.  We’ve actually made this as a solo dinner during the rest of winter. Two keys we’ve found - use really good ingredients and I always finish under the broiler for a little extra browning and crisping on top.

    Pulling off the grill!


    What did you think of the spiral cut ham? I usually do the whole ones, but the spiral cut ones would be much easier to serve.

    All of our family members loved it! It is still juicy when done. I haven’t cooked a whole one so it is hard to compare but the spiraled ones I’ve done soak up some good smoke flavor. I did a bourbon peach glaze that was pretty good. It took about 4 hours to reach 140 IT. It is very easy to carve up for serving and storing.

    Sold! I'll plan on doing one for Christmas.

    What temp did you have the egg at?

    Will post this here as it looked delicious, and may do a breast like this come Xmas:

    Sam TCG actually avoided stabbing himself or even burning himself this time, but his struggles with centering the bird on the rotisserie were quite entertaining.
    And dayam that bird looked good, with the sauce on it!

    @caliking It was running about 250-260 for the cook. It took right at 4 hours. Here is the recipe from meat church:


    I'm looking forward to seeing what spin you put on it!

    Thanks. I think I've done them at a higher temp in the past, maybe too high, given the sugar in the glaze. The color on yours looks perfect. 

    Now, I just have to remember this next month :)
