    The wife got up and fixed the turkey we had in the freezer for 6 months and fixed dressing and gravy to go with it. Her dressing is the best! And it was all good. We decided we weren't going to fix any more fancy holiday feasts because we are tired of them. It's too much work and all our kids have moved out of state except for my daughter and her convict gang banger hubby is not welcome here. Last thanksgiving my friend who helps out at the church that takes food to old people on TG offered to bring us a few dinners over so I said ok. It was ok but the wife didn't care for it. It did look like the kinda stuff they serve the convicts but it was ok. So we'll just barbecue or do something else.

    If your going to strap on the feedbag, a turkey is pretty good bird to do it with... Reasonably priced also... Some folks are so anal that they can't eat the same thing 2 meals in a row which makes a turkey a poor choice... I never have been the type to piss and moan about what I am eating, just damn thankful I have something to eat...
    Glad you enjoyed your bird...

    I smoked a whole chicken, pork chops, and two hillshire sausage links, in my smoker for about four hours last Friday and have been eating that as the main course since. It's all great!!! Those hillshire sausage taste really great, smokey, and juicy, after spending some time in a smoker.

    *****HAPPY SMILE*****

    My wife asked if I wanted turkey on Thanksgiving and Christmas right after we were married or would I prefer ham on one of the two.

    I wanted something different than most other people altogether.

    So on Thanksgiving we have turkey and on Christmas we've had duck ever since.

    Easter is ham.

    *****HAPPY SMILE*****

    I do Turkey a few times a year. I just get a breast, smoke it and make a cranberry bbq sauce for it.
    Can't seem to get tired of it lol

    During the holiday sales of Turkey I always get two small/medium birds to smoke the next summer. Smoked turkey is the bestest.
