  • T-Day and the Holidaze-----.

    What's the plan, what's on the plate? Is it still a Covid thing?
    For me, the family was going to get together after not doing it for the large group last year, well, that did not plan out. We lost two sections of family, so we are down to 13ish.
    The two sections? Not coming because of Covid.
    Turkey, and I'm hungry, I might throw a fillet on there to keep me busy before the bird(s) get done.

      I did that one year. It was nice actually. Food wasn't as good, but the hassle factor was really low.

    We’re doing the bird and all the fixings at our house for anyone that wants to show up. Probably going to have 20 family members. Looking forward to it.

        We’ll go to the n Florida property w the kids and the camper and see a couple nieces.
        most all we have left in FL are dead.
        we have a ton of kin in MI but they mostly suffer from TDS and are Whitmerized and don’t gather.

        Kids have an uncle that lives off the grid. He cooks the Turkey in the ground (hot coals, wrap the Turkey, drop it in the ground, cover w dirt, dig up, eat).
        exciting times.

        We are doing our same as last year. 35 people, family and friends. Everything is catered by the Ravenous Pig (they even season and brine the 3 turkeys, I smoke 2 of them and fry one). We have a musician with his guitar, speakers and looper showing up at 5 and playing until he either quotes or the cops show up (last year we had a different guy, we kept feeding him food and good whiskey so he kept playing)

        Anyone gonna be in Central FL, holler and stop by.

            We’re doing a thing Thanksgiving weekend. Turns out the Clemson/South Carolina football game has more appeal than Moms turkey, so our crowd is coming in for the weekend.
            6 extra folks and one extra dog in the house. Calls for a large prime rib 👍

              My youngest son is a Business Development Manager for Sysco.
              He gets incredible quality meats at restaurant cost. We need that since his pricing for beef is up 24% since January. FJB 👎
              yeah, humblebrag 😀

              Ole and KMac sent me a standing rib roast and instructions for cooking around 2 years ago
              It was amazing

            We are having Thanksgiving lunch the Sunday before that actual day at my sons house. Youngest son will be at work on Thanksgiving day and youngest grandson will be with his dad so we have to get together early. Thanksgiving day will be just Todd and I. This will be the first time ever. Normally we have about 30 family members at my house. This will be different for sure.

              Just the 2 of us on Thanksgiving Day. None of the kids can get home and extended family this year all rotate to their spouse's side. It's our year to be together on Christmas. Maybe. Hopefully.

              Not sure what I'm gonna do for T-day yet other than the traditional hunting in the morning.

              With both my Dad & FIL gone, seems like the family cohesion for holidays may be slipping. Guess it falls on me to get that back in order.

              My Mom & MIL coming over on Sunday and I'm gonna smoke a prime rib, like last year.

                No Thanksgiving here, but Christmas is at my place (as it has been for decades) somewhere between 30-40 freeloaders, I will carry on like a baby about the effort and expense (as I do every year) as usual it will probably be a hot day (middle of summer here) we will have way too much food, Turkey, Ham, Pork, Blue Crab, Prawns, every type of salad ever made, people swimming in the pool or over at the beach, while my wife slaves over the food making sure everything is just right, white table cloth, proper knives and forks, proper plates (no plastic) the whole box and dice, the vultures will eat, make a mess have a swim then buzz off leaving me to clean up.....bah humbug, get off my lawn!

                  Going to give the deep fried Turkey a go (it's never done here) do you cook the Turkey first somehow? or do you just put it in the oil (avoiding the fires you see on YouTube) how do you cook it through without burning it?

                    I’ve always seen them cooked raw. Proper regulation of the oil temperature is the critical factor. Make SURE the turkey is completely thawed before frying.

                  You don’t pre-cook the turkey. The turkey must be completely thawed or you will have a mess and possible fire.
                  You can marinate/brine beforehand but the outside of the turkey should be patted dry.
                  Before heating the oil I would stick the turkey in the pot I was using then add my oil (peanut😀) until it came to the level I wanted for cooking. This is so you don’t overfill your pot with oil and have an overflowing mess when you putting the turkey in heated oil.
                  I heat the oil to 375*f and cook for 3-4 minutes/pound. Small turkeys maybe a little less.
                  Be prepared to get the turkey out and drain the oil as it’s now a hot mess😀
                  It will be up to the billing, though, tender and moist.
