Countdown to Turkey Time

by / Thursday, 01 November 2012 / Published in Blog

Halloween is over and so now it’s time to stop thinking about candy and start thinking about, that’s right, TURKEY! We’re only three weeks away from Thanksgiving. Hooray!

When it comes to turkey, I’m a traditionalist. By that I mean that I roast it in the oven, the way my mom did, the way my grandmother did, and so on. Since I grew up eating my grandmother’s and my mother’s turkeys and since now I’m the one who hosts the dinners, this means that I haven’t had the opportunity to even taste turkey cooked in different ways.

(I can only imagine the shocked expressions on the faces of all you Outdoor Cooking Fans who have realized what this means. I admit it. It’s true: I’ve never had a deep-fryed turkey or a turkey smoked on the grill. I apologize, I didn’t mean to upset you.).

Now let me just say, I’m not sure how willing I am to turn away from my traditions. However, over the next few weeks I’m going to look into it. I’ll be researching the different techniques, searching for incredible-looking recipes and bringing you all the good turkey info that I find.

In the meantime, I’d love to hear your thoughts on the biggest issue I face every year: To stuff or not to stuff? That is the question. Read about my own Poultry Cavity Conflict here and get a tasty recipe for Sausage and Pear Stuffing over here. And don’t forget to come back for some turkey time next week!
