    Same as every TDay, wife’s family for lunch, my family for dinner. Her family is about an hour and a half from us.

    My mom and I do all of Thanksgiving dinner for about 18-20 people, her mom's side of the family. I don't go to her dad's side of the family get together (they typically go out to eat) and I don't see my dad's side of the family. After I'm done cleaning up, I usually head to the SO's family get together for more food :lol:

    One rant about my Thanksgiving dinner... I once made green bean casserole from scratch, including making the onion straws for the top, and it was delicious. A few older family members prefer the canned green bean, Campbell's cream of mushroom, and French's fried onions. :mad: So now, every year I change up something "traditional" to my own tastes and don't care if anyone complains. I know good food and I'm cooking, stop talking. This year I'm making the Bon Appetit Mashed Potatoes With Crispety Cruncheties Recipe and I'm sure a few are going to be pissed. :lol:

    :lol: that would be people at my in law function. my wife actually makes some great ass potatoes. nothing crazy fancy, but we love them. lots of butter and we leave the skin on when we blend. anyways, brought them to Tday one year and most people wanted boxed flakes instead.

    are those the tatos the episode where molly and carla tried to find the perfect recipe? i need to finish it. i don't think its out yet but im eagerly waiting for the next turkey episode from brad. told my wife i might want to try whatever it was they come up.

    The decision has been made:
    1 18 lb. fresh turkey from a local farm slaughtered on the Sunday before Thanksgiving to be fried
    1 10 lb. frozen organic turkey from a different local farm to be smoked

    Turkey is the absolute worst part of a Thanksgiving meal.

    Nah, turkey really isn't that great. There's a reason people only eat it once a year.

    Dark meat turkey is fantastic; turkey breast is okay. I feel the same way about chicken. I think the reason people only make it once a year is due to the size. It's a ton of food for one household and it takes a long time to cook a whole one (unless you're frying, which gets expensive).

    contemplating spatchcocking the turkey this year. also debating not even making a raw one for home. we get free smoked ones at work and they are actually really good.

    Good idea about spatchcocking. I actually plan to break down the one I'm smoking into leg quarters, wings, and breasts so that they cook more evenly.

    we love doing that with a chicken every couple weeks. cooks fast and even.

    think they are roasting, but isn't that what brad did (broke it up)? i was gonna go back and make notes of everything they decided on. then decide if i want to do the same way or not.
