Turkey went on the smoker at 10:00 PM sharp

He’s a little guy at only 14 Lbs.

I injected brine with garlic in the breast and soaked it overnight in a seasoned brine solution

Now it is over cherry in the smoker which should top out in a couple of hours at 180

By around noon tomorrow I should be ready to bump the temp up to 250

The wife has made pies from some of her double apple canned stuff from the other night

Steamed and buttered cauliflower

Cornbread stuffing with cranberries and walnuts

And canned (Yes canned) yams. Even though I have a tub of sweet potatoes growing, none have been harvested and cured yet


Happy Thanksgiving all. Truly be happy for what you have in the here and now; It may not be here tomorrow

Feast and enjoy what you can with your family

My best regards to all of you
