    This is how I'm cooking my turkey this year:

    Step 1) Get beer
    Step 2) Sit on couch
    Step 3) turn on game
    Step 4) tell the wife it smells great
    Step 5) repeat step 1 and 4 every 30 minutes until it's done

    :D

    I'm frying one that will get brined and spiced for a day and then dry rubbed,injected and fried.

    The 2nd turkey will be dry rubbed and smoked over peach wood for 4-5 hours.

    The wife will take care of taters, mixed veg, chestnut and oyster or sausage stuffing, assorted breads, punkin pie and the grand old Jack Daniels chocolate pecan pie.

    Im not sure about frying, but you have to do it for smoking or it will turn out dry.

    I would suggest brining for the fried turkey.


    Also, not raw oysters, they're cooked in the stuffing. And WTF is wrong with you, no JD??

    Liquid Thanksgiving...turkey optional..

    I found out we're having thanksgiving here at my moms house for the first time in at least 5 years--my sisters daughter usually hosts the thanksgiving and Xmas dinners and "festivities" at her house 65 miles north of here,but this year she's going to her husbands parents home instead..

    I've stayed home and avoided all the dysfuntional family arguments and the long drive there and back the past 5 years..--I dont like "family" get-togethers,I'm a black sheep...I'd much rather stay here alone and have the place to myself for a few hours--a rarity I dont get to do very often..

    I was told we have to "pick up" our thanksgiving meal wednesday afternoon--it seems my mother decided she would rather fork over 60 bucks, and have a "Stop and Shop"store prepare our meal FOR us...I'm expecting a dried out heat lamp cooked carcass of a turkey ,and endless bitching about its quality--I'll probably have to bring her back to the store friday so she can piss and moan about how lousy it was...:surepal: :doah: :( :mad:

    ....sigh..SO..

    I'm going to the liquor store..:D --at least I'll wont be THIRSTY on "Thirsty Thursday"...and I'm stocking my fridge in the shop with some goodies,so I wont have to starve if the turkey sucks..I'd love to have a deep fried turkey,but maybe next year I'll be able to buy a fryer and do it myself MY way!....:crazy:

    I pray to God Christmas comes and goes quickly--I hate this time of year..cold,snow,long dark nights--and no end of hypocrites wishing me a "merry christmas"..:surepal: :cool: ..wont be able to go to any stores for another 2 months without them being mobbed...:(
