    Bride keeps saying, "get something out of the freezer for dinner"....   Sooooo, what am I supposed to do....   We've got all these cheep birds from last November....   and they are really good...

    Anywho, I haven't shown anything for a few weeks and I did have to make sure the MES 30 still functioned....    I think there are 3 turkeys left in the freezer...   

    The small incidental pieces have been consumed by the cook....  backbone, tail, gizzard, liver, heart......

    I'm just getting ready to spatch a chicken.

    Our wives must be on the same page.

    Chicken or turkey is what she wanted.

    Morning Richie....   I really like the MES....   It needed some serious mods but I sure like the way I got it working now....  No complaints at all....

    I didn't brine this bird...   Has lots of flavor but a little dry for our liking Soooooooo, I think it's going into turkey soup...   AWESOME.... I love turkey soup.....   We'll see what Bride has to say....

    Great looking bird Dave. Somehow I missed most the holiday sales and free bird gigs this year. I do have one turkey breast hanging out in the freeze that will get to be smoked one of these days.

    Points!

    Hey Dirt....   Well, you working dudes don't have time to stroll the stores on a daily basis to get the good deals...   Think about all the "store time" you will have in a few years....   Rub elbows with the "old senior crowd"....

    Your turkey 'sploded!!

    I just can't understand why we are only supposed to have turkey once a year! Especially at .99/lb. 

    Can any tell me whats up with the fryer prices?  2 weeks ago fryers were 1.30 to 170 lb, about normal here. Last week they all had 'em on sale at 1.00/lb. the usual sale price but then this week they are on sale for .49/lb.. That's the lowest I have seen 'em here in years!

    Isn't the next holiday the 4th? Mother's day is a month off....

    Oh I forgot, nice turkey Dave!

    Nice looking turkey, Dave. I managed to grab an extra 10 pounder for $.99 at Easter and it will be heading into the MLS pretty soon.
