    Bought a smoked turkey one year from the local smokehouse. Best I've had. Best part was just had to reheat it.

    Thinking of de-boning for this year undecided as of yet but probable then a good stock can be made for stuffing and gravy base, I'll keep you posted :james

    We make "Pie" for all major holidays, including Thanksgiving:

    Usually pepperoni and (if we can find them) oyster mushrooms.

    For years we used to go to the casino and hit the buffet. We called it Give Back to the Indians Day. Seemed appropriate.
  7. Way to early for me to think about this :)

    Still have to get through Halloween. My local hd has Christmas stuff on the shelves...

    I really like boning stuffing and rolling turkey vs. a whole bird. It cooks much faster and more evenly and is not much more work.

    Lucretia: have you tried growing your own oyster shrooms? It's not too hard, you use sterilized hay as a substrate, ziploc bags and medical tape to create a habitat, and buy loaded inoculating syringes from the Internet to get your spores. I had some mycology dudes (and a mycology lady) walk me through it and i got good results. If you have, or know someone who has, a crawfish burner it makes sterilizing the hay a breeze. The old parish extension agent here in Orleans Parish had a oyster mushroom grow setup in a shopping cart in his back yard that was absurdly productive, but I have no idea how he did it.

    Andre, I'm glad you mentioned growing your own. I've never done it, but I bought a kit to try a while back. Now all I have to do is find the darn thing...

    Deboned and bursting was last nights offering to the family with rave reviews, A solid turkey stock thanks to the bones helps for a great stuffing and sauce, Homemade cranberry sauce also helped it along.

    I don't usually like turkey, but I'd eat some of that!

    If I am really honest, I understand the tradition and all, but I really find turkey much overrated. Well, maybe because the people I know buy the $3.99 for a 20# tasteless variety in the supermarket, but I'd much rather eat a free range chicken. Or a steak... No plans for this year, yet. I have a German friend in town, maybe we'll just gorge on seafood.
