    What's your Thanksgiving menu?

    We'll be doing the traditional dinner.

    Anybody cookin' 'outside the box'?

    What's on your menu?

    Please include your favorite side dish recipes!

    I'm going to brine our Turkey and then smoke it in the grill dome - a first on both counts.

    Re: What's your Thanksgiving menu?

    This year, we are trying something different. What will be different is that I won't be the one doing the cooking! I plan on letting someone else shoulder that load for a change. Instead, I'll watch me some Dallas Cowboys and come running when the dinner bell rings!

    Re: What's your Thanksgiving menu?

    I'll be frying up the turkey again - my 4th year doing it. I don't think I'll ever go back to an oven roasted bird. I would like to try a smoked turkey sometime

    One of last year's turkey's:

    So, Sean, how was the bird?

    We had the usual suspects, and WAY too much, as usual. I did a fresh bird instead of frozen this year, and it was delish!

    We had Thanksgiving with the in-laws yesterday and we are going to my parents today so we have not had the turkey yet that I made. In fact, I just pulled it out - looks great. I did not get the brine it though. The one my wife bought was pre-basted, or whatever they call it, which means I'd have been wasting my time brining. I did smoke it with hickory and apple wood though so that should give it a nice flavor. I'll report back later.

    Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving!

    Re: What's your Thanksgiving menu?

    Sorry been busy....

    I played host to 26 on Thursday. My aunt brought a corn casserole that had jalepeno (sp?) in it, very out of the box, but yummy. My cousin brought a savory sweet potato dish, instead of the usual marsmellow syrupy kind, this was much different. I don't recall what all was in it but it had garlic and green pepper I think and goat cheese on top. My daughter was not happy and kept asking for the marshmellows. It was very good. Definetly out of the box.

    I came down with a cold on Wednesday so it was all I could do to manage the event without contaminating everyone and everything, I'm just exhausted. Still haven't recovered, think it's a sinus infection now. Sunday I get to host about 30 for my daughter's 11th birthday, and then the week after that we host 50 or so for the neighborhood Christmas party. And then on Christmas we host hubby's family, at least 35 on that day. Frankly I don't have the energy for out of the box.

    I'm plum worn out. House is all decorated, we finished the trees last night. It was all I could do to drag my self out of bed to get DOD off to school. I had almost 100 emails to read thru and haven't even looked at the computer since last Wednesday.

    I'll keep my smoked turkey report short. The day after eating the turkey I smoked on my grill dome, my dad ordered one for himself. I'd say it went over pretty well. 8)
