Turkey Talk


This was last year's turkey, and although my dad did most of the work, I'm hoping this year's turns out just as lovely. I like to make a turkey every year for just me and Jonah. It's sort of ridiculous, but I consider it all practice for the day I actually host a Thanksgiving, plus we eat turkey sandwiches and turkey soup for days. I've combined all sorts of brining, basting and glazing methods, but this year, I'm going full Alton Brown on it. Have a Happy Thanksgiving, friends! Put on some cozy socks and eat lots of sweet potatoes.

  2. It's just not thanksgiving without the turkey. :) This year we're brining ours in a coffee mix and then smoking it. I got the recipe from Food and Wine - *crossing fingers*. (Cozy socks and sweet potato's sound pretty good right now. )

    Happy Thanksgiving!

  3. Looks wonderful! Last year I did aromatics and rubbed that baby all over with sage butter, delicious. Happy early Thanksgiving!

  7. I've been making turkey for the past two thanksgivings, and I have to say, my biggest motivation is for the leftovers!
