we had a halloween forum, which by all accounts awas a raging success.

please, can we move the turkey madness to another forum?

it seems this year in particular things have gotten nutty, and the big day is still a ways off.
for the love of all that is holy... please, i beg you, WPB and WMK.

  • True - could just be called "holiday feasts" or something like that.

    Yes, I know I contributed to aforementioned madness.... ;) Or was perhaps the major source... :evil:

    There was a Halloween forum?
  • You gotta got folks some slack. Thanksgiving dinner is like asking people to home run when you only take a swing once a year. It's not easy for most to pull off. (I myself could do it blind, but hey . . .)
  • I thnk this is great. I am bummed, that i dont get to do a turkey for thanksigving as we are going to the middle of nowhere in Pennsylvania to my mom's. I will probably get to cook one in a couple of weeks or for Christmas.

    looks like you misunderstood me. apologies.

    putting the turkey posts in one spot would be far easier for the newbies, and would cause a little less fatigue for some of us that try to be helpful, but sigh when we see the same question asked three times in one day.

    just looking for a turkey question repository, rather than a opium suppository

    Or.... how about a banner that says "For all your turkey questions, select the Search Forum in the upper left and type in 'Turkey'"

    Wait.... naaaaaa, that would be too easy. :whistle:
  • Believe it or not, I've done that quite a bit. ;) That's how I found the Mad Max recipe without having to post "Could someone please post the mad max recipe?" ;)
  • Stike, I nominate you to moderate the Turkey forum.
  • PhilsGrillPhilsGrill Posts: 2,256
    Bingo! :laugh: :woohoo:
  • fishlessmanfishlessman Posts: 23,002
    imagine running a turkey hot line on thanksgiving day :laugh: :laugh:
  •  
    Hey stike, just send all the turkeys . . . err, turkey post's that is, over to the Weight Lose Forum, there are 3 threads over there for the past 60 days! :laugh:

    Do you carve a turkey anything like you do a pumpkin?


     
  • I agree. I'm glad to help. but I have posted the link to Mad Max's site a at least daily, as have others.

    So many come on here asking for turkey help without even trying to do a simple search, which is offered right at the top of the page... :huh:

    A seasonal / holiday Forum would be helpful.

    I think we need an opium suppository forum. What is the maximum size? How many minutes per lb do I "cook" it?


    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg.

    could someone please tell me the best temp to roast a turkey? surely it can't be the same temp I would use in an oven. :blink: :laugh:

    and who's this Max dude anyway?

    :laugh: :laugh:

    actually, it doesn't matter to me. I'm going to Mommy's house and will leave it up to her to overcook the beast (as she usually does). Couple of years ago (when she was only 92), I was paying ZERO attention and this was the result...

    Maybe this time, I can at least remember to bring my maverick and thermapen. And a bag of ice cubes. Or maybe I can convince her to let ME roast the turkey this year... but I doubt it. :) In any case, there's no egg there and no way to GET one there.

    Happy Thanksgiving everyone!!

    I hate it when I go to the kitchen for food and all I find are ingredients!

    Ron, your SIL must LOVE you!!! :laugh:

    I am headed to Mom's on Wed. I have decided that, tomorrow, I am going to the grocery store to buy what I don't already have for Max's ingredients. I've never done a madmax turkey, but even though it will have to be in an oven, I'm gonna give it a shot.

    I've never been a gravy guy, but I gotta call mom tonight and tell her not to throw out the neck and stuff (cuz I know she will - if she hasn't already!).

    Just called Mom and I'm in luck! The heart, neck, liver, et al, are still in the bird! Though she admitted that she would have thrown them out. :) And she's gonna let me do the turkey honors this year. Hope I don't screw it up!!! Can't be any worse than the pic I already posted - really, it CAN'T!

  • Sometimes Mom's just know. My mom lost the hearing in her left ear about a year before she passed. My Dad and I would always sit on her left and talk about her. She would plant left hooks on both of us after a while.

    so THAT'S what happened to you!! :laugh:

    Mom's deaf as a post, though the hearing aids seem to help. She's 94 now, and I really don't care if she can't hear well - or cooks holes in the turkey! She recently returned from a bus tour of Newport, RI and Downeast ME. Had a friend with her, but would have been just fine on her own. Couple of years ago, we were in NYC visiting my son. Walked all over Manhattan. I asked her how she was holding up. Her reply? If YOU can do it, so can I!! And she was RIGHT!! The woman just never seems to get old!!! I am so blessed to still have her!!!!!!!!!!

  • Michael,

    Treasure that man! My Mom made it to 69 and was strong as a horse and then was gone in a heartbeat.

    Believe me, I DO, my friend!!! Dad was 69 when he died too. Mom's been alone, living in the house I grew up in, ever since. She is a remarkable woman... even if she can't Reply All. :)

    Whoa, .... at first I thought the subject was a lead in to some sort of funny anecdote about our pal BobbyQ whose last name is Cressap... but that's not the case.

    Jeff, the holidays are the time of the year when all Eggers ask for advice, in one way or another. And the closer to Christmas it gets, more new Eggers will jump in because they have a new hobby. That's the way it is.
    Happy Trails

    Yeah. I picked up on that the last six or seven years.
    Hahaha ;)

    kinda gets old after the thirtyfifth question

    honestly do think they could all go in one place to make it easier
