    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? [​IMG]
    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! [​IMG]

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

    Take care, have fun, and do good!

    Quarter the thing, and smoke it! Ya dont have to have a whole, pieced together field bird to smoke it or make it tasty!

    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! [​IMG] )

    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! [​IMG]

    You do have a way of sticking my foot in my mouth! [​IMG]

    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!...[​IMG]

    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'!!...[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    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!
