What's on the Thanksgiving menu?

Recommended Posts

Got my turkey in the brine last night. For the last several years, my starting point has been Alton Brown's turkey recipe: https://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/alton-brown/good-eats-roast-turkey-recipe-1950271

I basically follow all his instructions on the brine and the fruit/onion stuffing, but I've done our last several turkeys in our electric smoker. A couple months back, I added a pellet grill to the arsenal, so this year's turkey is going to be slow smoked on that.

Are food preparations underway for you all as well? What are you making?

Ok it is odd in most folks eyes. It is just me and the Wife now and the 2 dogs.  We never cook traditional Thanksgiving dinner because we do not care for Turkey. Got some beef tips marinating for Kabobs on the grill---- She also has some Crab meat ( fresh Local) pulled out for crab and cheese stuffed Mushrooms. And believe it or not we do like stuffing so she is going to do some with beef gravy too. And the old Green Bean Cassarole. Right now it is cold and windy here and she has a pot of Pinto beans in the slow cooker for tonight and fried cornbread. One year when her mother was still living I did a huge low country boil. As in life in general we do not do things the traditional way. She just told me we had more crab and cheese mix than big mushrooms so later I am going to split some Jalepenos and do crab cheese stuffed peppers bacon wrapped

I'm dry brining a 6lbs turkey breast for my in-laws over night tonight (only needs 12 hour brine) and into the Humphreys at 350° for a couple of hours.

This is the first holiday season with just my wife and I.  I've been driving through snow and ice in the Columbia River gorge for 53 years to see mom and dad.  Now that they are gone, we are just staying home.

I just put our turkey on the Grilla bbq/smoker an hour ago.  Seasoned and stuffed with apple/onion/salt/pepper/garlic/cola mixture. Should be ready in 6-8 hours.  We are cooking it today because we have a tee time at our sister course across the river Thursday morning with another couple.  

It's OK if we eat some of it for dinner tonight... right???  😁

Best decision of my life was marrying into the family my wife grew up in as my first generation American status meant most family is 5 time zones away across the pond.  Her family is big enough for two separate Thanksgiving dinners a few miles apart in the same county.  Everyone brings a dish to pass and many of those are desserts.  Sooo many desserts.   What is someone supposed to do when he (who will not be named 😇) has trouble choosing between desserts?  Also choosing between all the meats, stuffings, vegetables... okay I have trouble choosing.

My solution at my first BIG family dinner decades ago was to not choose and they pulled out a full size dinner plate and put a little of everything on it.  It is now known as the "sampler plate" and everyone knows what is available for dessert by looking at my plate.  I highly recommend not heaping the dinner plate to make room for said sampler plate though there is only slight chance I will heed my own advice yet again this year.

Bon appetite!
