Thanksgiving at The Bear’s Den (2021)
This is gonna be a Different kind of a year again.
For about 10 years, we had Thanksgiving at Bear Jr’s Den, because he had his in-laws there.
Then last year, due to the Pandemic, and No Vaccinations available yet, Mrs Bear & I had our TG at our Den, and Bear Jr & Bethany had their Dinner at their Den.
So since I’m no longer Smoking, I decided to make 2 Boneless Turkey Breast Roasts.
I also decided to make them in my Ninja Smart Grill, with the Smart Probe inserted.
So we rinsed the 2 Roasts & patted them Dry, after removing the bags & Net completely.
One fell apart & the other didn’t, so I decided not to flip them.
I Rubbed them down with Avocado Oil, and then Poultry Seasoning.
I set all the controls at 325°, Target Temp of 170°, and started it up.
After preheat was done, it said “Add Food”, so I did just that. Tracker said 43° IT.
When it said “Rest”, I opened it up & killed the heat. It carried over to between 172° and 181°, depending on where I stuck it.
Bear Jr brought Filling & a Pumpkin Pie.
I filled my plate & Mrs Bear brought it to me, in my chair, because I don’t like to eat at the table with oxygen on, and I have a tendency to drop things. They all joined me in the Living Room with their Desserts.
Everything was Great, including the “Brand New Shoo Fly Cake” Mrs Bear made.
I’ll make a Post all about that Cake in the next few days. It is now my Favorite Cake!!

Mrs Bear made this "Shoo Fly Cake" It tastes exactly like a Shoo Fly Pie, without the crust & the wet bottom.
I'll be posting the Recipe & Step by Steps soon, as this is now My Favorite Cake!!
