The last few years I have taken TDay off and taken the family to the Ritz Carlton for dinner. An amazing buffet/brunch.
Now we are in the midle of the panhandle there are no really nice places to go for TDay and the Womans family is here.
So we are cooking.
My part is turkey and mashed potatoes...they are making the rest.
Two turkeys...one butterball for the new masterbuilt turkey fryer and one fresh for the WSM.
Had the butcher use his bandsaw and cut the fresh one in half.
Thawed and brined with Tips recipe and added JJs reccomended 2/3 cup of cider vinegar.
Out of the brine and rinsed this am after 36 hours of bath time.
Now they are resting comfy in the fridge waiting for a visit from the "great pellicle".
The WSM is ready to go to 300 with RO lump and local pecan.
My work for today is done..time for a cuppa coffee and a Cuban cigar.
Life is good today!!!
