I was expecting a quiet day my boy was going to his in-laws? and I was gonna make more smoked turkey lunchmeat today and grind some pork butt for sausage.

I got my last turkey out of the brine to debone. I split the skin up the breast to start cutting down the bone and got a call his girlfriend and mother-in-law both took two extra shifts at work (triple time pay yikes) so their Thanksgiving got canceled! It's already almost down the middle and I guess I'm making a turkey to bring up to my boy.

I wonder if I can sew the two pieces back together? icon_smile.gif
Oh well it won't be pretty but at least I'll see my boy for Thankgiving.

Good thing I was already planning something with turkey their not a last minute thing! PDT_Armataz_01_09.gif

Sounds almost like you spatchcocked the bird. It'll still taste great!

Take care, have fun, and do good!

Thank guys but this is my baby boy (he's 30) and he needs a real turkey for thankgiving!

Mama to the rescue!

Meowy - I do most of my birds that way I'm always worried about those little rib bones and such but it's Thankgiving and I have to make it look like a whole bird or my boy will be disappointed. Mommy magic ya know!

Tim - I can never remember that darn word I don't know why. My boy always just said I butched the chickens and turkeys so he wouldn't get to use a knife till he was 50! (It's not true he was only 18 when I let him cut his own meat! Piggie don't go there! icon_mrgreen.gif )

Crew - funny thing is he likes smoked legs best but now that he's a grown man he gets to slice the turkey and it makes him feel good. You guys know how that works right? The Dad slices the turkey thing ... he's not a Dad but he was so proud when I handed him the carving knife - a right of passage thing I guess. Old fashioned I know but I love Norman Rockwell what can I say!

Coley - I love the 'Forensic Pathologist', or 'County Coroner' thing. He'll crack up at that.

Any who it's not pretty but I think it'll be whole. I think I'll call him FrakenTurk!

Teasing ya Piggie! PDT_Armataz_01_11.gif

You do have a way of sticking my foot in my mouth! icon_razz.gif

I am kind of an overly protective Mom, but I get it honest! I think the first time I used a knife to cut my own meat I was in bootcamp!

Here the 120 degree birds - using my Mareric remote today for the first time so I can watch the Packers game.

Whoa, Debi!!...The stitching's too NEAT!...PDT_Armataz_01_23.gif

To look like a 'Forensic Pathologist', or a 'County Coroner' did it, you've gotta use the 'Baseball' stitch!!...

Then it'll be a REAL 'FrankenTurk'!!...PDT_Armataz_01_05.gifPDT_Armataz_01_28.gifPDT_Armataz_01_18.gif

Not to worry, Dude!

srmonty is my screen name in a lot of places. It spawned the "Sir Monty" that Dutch hung on me and so lead to the "Knighthood" of the SMF!

I prefer to be addressed as either Steve or Monty. So, for my own unique purposes I asked Jeff to change my screen name to Monty to make it a bit more personal and inline with my own stupid ego.

Thank you for noticing, Dude!

D88de -

Monty doesn't need SR before his name to let you know he's a true gentleman all you need to do is read a few posts.

Well dinner was great! Only for two but I decided I didn't need my boy to enjoy a Thanksgiving feast and both Jessie and myself deseved it anyway. Funny I didn't think of that before - anyways here it is, Turkey, cranberry dressing, mushroom gravy, taters, corn with diced peppers, Dacdots Acorn squash (thanks hon!), cranberry sauce and rolls:

The toopicks held and the bird didn't really look to weird considering the surgury. Guess I'll freeze him to later!
