    Yes, Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

    I may be small, but I'm slow.

    Have a great one!

    By the way, for the first time in my life, that I remember, my wife is preparing a Thanksgiving feast without any pre-made food.

    The stuffing includes dried bread that she cut up, home made brine, and home-made cranberry sauce. In my prior lives, all of that stuff came out of a box or can. I didn't know people made this stuff from scratch. No store bought crusts. I am allowed to carry things from here to there, as my contributions are very minimal.

    I’m frying the turkey. 3.5 gallons of peanut oil at 350 degrees. Highly recommend anyone try it sometime. I did it for the first time three years ago and I doubt we’ll ever cook the turkey differently.

    Does the peanut oil leave any residual flavor?

    The whole turkey tastes like peanut butter. It makes sort of a dessert bird. Goes great with ice cream and chocolate gravy.

    I'm thankful for my family and pie. Four kinds today. Marion Berry, Coconut Cream, Pumpkin, and Lemon. If that's not enough cheesecake is available too, but it's the lousy Costco cheesecake.

    Happy Thanksgiving! I don’t post often, but today is a day to count our blessings and fatten ourselves up.

    Both of our parents are out of town so we did a traditional dinner yesterday with just the 6 of us. Roasted a turkey this year -turned out great after brining for 24h. We’re spending the rest of the weekend avoiding rocks while skiing at Snowbird.

    HTG, everyone. I'm sitting on the couch with a full belly. We had thanksgiving with just our kids. We've been married about 15 years and this is only the second time we haven't spent the day with one of our parents. We also did a bunch of Christmas decorating but I was able to avoid most of that so it's been a good day.

    Brined overnight and smoked this morning. My cook time on the smoker is always quicker than what is online. I might have cooked it longer than what I wanted, but I think brining covers a multitude of cooking sins.

    It was a nice thanksgiving. We had my brother and his family, and our oldest and her boyfriend. We were only missing our second daughter who was at her boyfriend’s home in Montana. Pretty low key and quiet.
