    im trying to talk the family into letting me deep fry the turkey. the oven is broke where we are eating so we are gonna cook it here and brink it down unless we deep fry it.
    ive never had it fried before, but heard its the only way to fly

    I'm an oddity, I like my poultry very dry. So whenever I have anything to say about it, roasted.

    Ham. i hate turkey.

    baked with pepper corns, pine apple and glaze. add a little oregano and a tad bit of cyane pepper over the top as you baste it.

    serve over a bed of romaine lettuice with a side of glazed carrots and cranberries. dribble the sauce over the lettuice. a side dish should be salad with cranbery sauce chunks in it, mushrooms, celery, yellow bell peppers, black pepper broccli and dressing should include thousand island or catalina. somethign with tang to balance the sweet of the ham and carrots.

    man i miss my kitchen..... :mad:

    Smoked is my favorite, but I going to try high temp roasting it this year. You need a small turkey to do and since there will only be 4 of us this year, now's the time to try it. I'll post pics if it comes out good, if not we'll all be in the hospital anyway.

    ummm...

    I have yet to taste a deep fried turkey--but would love too!..my toungue hangs out and drools when I see somone on TV deep frying one. :p: .I've only had oven roasted turkey..I'd buy a fryer,and a turkey,if I was employed,just to see how it tastes..maybe next year.. :(

    Since a "Honey Baked Ham" store is only 1/4 mile from our house,we have had ham for thanksgiving mostly since they came about,until a few years ago--(and I don't really like ham that much..).but then my neice started having the meal at her house 70 miles away--so I stay home and enjoy the peace and quiet instead,let my mom and younger brother go,and I eat what they bring home instead..By the time thanksgiving and xmas roll around,I'm overdue for some time alone IN the house,without my mom for a change..I need a day off!

    I'll take leftovers and a "doggie bag" over a family feud any thanksgiving..and who wants to drive that far in holiday traffic anyway?..not me.. :rolleyes:

    Anyone ever have garbage can turkey?

    I had it camping once, but can't remember if I liked it or not (not a fan of poultry). Everyone I know who's ever tried it raves about it.
