Turkey For Me, Turkey for You

You need a killer turkey if you want to have a killer Thanksgiving.  Living in the south, I know many of you will go out back and deep fry your bird.  Awesome.  Just don’t burn down the garage.  I like deep fried turkey, but I found a recipe that beats it (at least for me).

Click here to get it–and I give this to you today because, if you decide to use this recipe, it takes two days to do (one day for brining, one day for cooking).  Add one thing to the recipe–before putting it in the oven, mix a bunch of spreadable butter and some sage leaves.  Using your hands, slightly separate the skin from the breast and rub down that turkey with the butter mixture (yeah, I know, it sounds a little naughty).  This REALLY amps up the crispness of the skin.

Now, to get you in the Thanksgiving spirit, here’s a live version of Adam Sandler’s Thanksgiving song (it’s just audio–and please ignore the one naughty part):

Aaron is a follower of Jesus. He's married to his smokin' hot wife Laura and is the father of three adorable girls. He enjoys a robust cigar, a complex root beer, a good movie, writing, football, thought-provoking books, and rousing discussions about subjects you're not supposed to talk about (like theology and politics). Religious people irritate him (because he once was one). He's on a quest to find the perfect dry rub and sauce for ribs.

    Alton Brown is the man. We don’t have to make a turkey because Reber’s mom usually makes a turkey and a ham (and 500 side dishes). This year we’re bringing the pumpkin pie and it’s gonna be stellar!! I’m not even using canned pumpkin…the fresh was really easy. Anyway, Happy Thanksgiving!

    He’s a rather eccentric fellow, but he’s definitely the man when it comes to food. Everything I’ve ever tried of his (which is like, two things) has been amazing.
