Never been a big fan of turkey so I usually grill steaks every year. Unfortunately, we have a bunch of family coming this year, so I suppose I'll just have to deal with turkey.

Wild Turkey for me.....

My father inlaw likes to have his giblet gravy, and oyster dressing. I stay away from that stuff, but I sure eat alot of the other food. He also likes his Lutfisk sp? Yeah!

Going to Libertyville, Ill. for a huge turkey and some fun family time. Looking forward to getting out of Dodge for about a week. Love that Chicago traffic though, 24/7.
Deep fried turkey and a couple racks of ribs, along with mashed and sweet potatoes, stuffing, cranberry sauce, green bean casserole, other veggies, and football with a beer in hand!

Last year I switched it up and went with stuffed pork chops and million different sides dishes and desserts.

Turkey and all the fixings. Turkey made in the Char Broil Big Easy. No oil and fantastic flavor. Cooked outside while sitting in the garage having drinks and hopefully watching it snow.

I used to work at the Library in Houghton during college. They close down for Thanksgiving and throw a pot-luck Thanksgiving party for the staff and quite a few x-staff.
I have been returning every Thanksgiving since leaving 7 years ago. Great time... old friends, 8 am Screwdriver's, JELLO shots, watching the Pack beat up on the Lions, and of course getting back to Ho-town!
It's easy to choke down all that food...if you start drinking before you eat.

Turkey n Ham are what we have every year, two weeks and counting, hope Gaylord has some snow for us to play in http://www.johndee.com/discuss/clipart/happy.gif
BKboats... the pics you shared of your smoked Turkey on FB I believed you mastered the smoker. http://www.johndee.com/discuss/clipart/happy.gif

Right down by all of the auto dealers on Milwaukee. It is at Milwaukee and Greentree Pkwy. Always fun over there. Cousins have lived there for ever. We just hate the Chicago traffic. It doesn't seem to matter if you get there at 2 AM or 2PM. But it's worth it.

Ahhhh, great topic!!
Thanksgiving dinner is my FAVORITE meal to cook!
Turkey and ALL THE FIXIN'S! I always make 3 times what is necessary - just for the left overs! I make broth from the turkey bones to freeze to make turkey and noodles later on.
My 'rents are coming this year for the feast. Will be good family time!
GOD BLESS EVERYONE! Happy Thanksgiving MERRY CHRISTMAS and HAPPY NEW YEAR!
REV IT UPx3!
