    How many of you have tried it? This stuff is awesome! Even we Yuppies in California like it - but I have to admit it does kind of look like a good ole "REDNECK BAR-B-Q" .... favorite! :D

    We had Thanksgiving dinner (potluck style) last year at the home of a friend. There was a very large group of people there and 3 different people were invited to cook the main dish .. a turkey .. for the gathering. It was really kind of fun.


    1. The first turkey was cooked traditionally, in the oven stuffed with cornbread stuffing, and all the trimmings. The usual yummy, yummy Thanksgiving turkey.

    2. The second was a large goose, stuffed with a de-boned turkey, stuffed with a duck, stuffed with a chicken. It was good, more interesting than actually all that good. But still tasty.

    3. The thrid was a deep fried turkey, cooked on the spot in the back yard, in one of those turkey deep fryers. Hmmmm .... let me try to describe this one. It really was a good show to watch and it gathered quite a crowd - off and on - to see how it was doing, as it cooked. And the final taste test was not overwhelming. I did not like the taste of it ... plus it was - too greasy.

    So the overall consensus was ..... DO NOT MESS WITH TRADITIONAL THANKSGIVNG TURKEY! :D

    You're missing out, bud. Get on it.

    Just remember: Let the turkey thaw all the way and do it as far away from the house as possible.
