    Great looking meal Alex, loved the skin on the turkey (great deal by the way) and that rice looked amazing! Glad you were able to share some great food with others.
    Roasting all those peppers, canning, smoking, when do you actually get a chance to rest?

    ALX, your turkey looks great.

    I've just did my second whole turkey breast. I must have over cooked it because it was not as juicy as the first. Temps were reading 170-180 depending on where I checked, which I didn't think was too high at the time.

    The first one I did was on sale for .99/lb. A 5 pounder. Came out great. The second was at the original price of $3.29 and was also around 5 lbs. Makes a nice dinner and I save on whole side for sandwiches. It cuts really well when chilled.

    Not to mention you can save the carcass and make a nice homemade stock.
