    We have pizza for Thanksgiving, and usually only have turkey breasts when we have turkey (only 2 of us.) The grocery was giving away free turkeys the other day, so now I've got a 16 lb bird to deal with. It was the smallest they had. Right now it's thawing in a mini fridge that has the door held closed with duct tape.

    The door will close with the turkey in there, but it puts just enough load on the magnetic strip that it pops open. If you can't fix it with duct tape, it ain't broken.

    Love that mini fridge pic!

    My 23.1 pounder is sitting in a 5 gal bucket of brine/ice until Wednesday night
    Take out of brine, rinse, dry it off, return to fridge overnight
    In the morning, rub some butter between meat/skin
    A light coating of oil and my special blend of spices and aromatics before it goes in the sauna!
    Have a knife day!

    3 12 lb birds. A quarter or half a Turkey with basic fixings delivered makes some people pretty happy this time of year. We'll have leftovers from half a bird.

    We normally have prime rib for thanksgiving. This year we are feeding some folks that we don't want to share our roast with so I am doing a turkey and we'll have the rib roast on Friday.

    I'm doing an 18 lb. bird butterfly cut in high heat. We'll see how it comes out. Fingers are crossed.
