Back to Turkey.

Dad would buy the biggest bird that would fit into the oven. We would have turkey for many many nights after Thanksgiving Dinner.
Re heated Turkey and potatoes, Turkey sandwiches, Turkey/rice soups, Turkey Ala-King, just on and on.

Quoted from o-din:

Reminds me of when people were dying from eating Jack in the Box and they were offering tacos 4 for 99 cents in the aftermath.
My buddy said "What a deal! I'm going to show you how to eat deadly bacteria and live!" So we did....

What are you talking about Odiner!

I'm still here and I used to feast on those Super tacos from Jack back in the day.

And those convenience store fried burritos!

The all time best though was the late night $5 gut pump at Taco Bell.

We're eating out for Thanksgiving this year. Hosting it is such a pain in the ass. Thanksgiving Anxiety Disorder is for real.

This year. No turkey. No salad. Not because we don’t like that, just mixing it up. 12-16 oz ribeyes for all. Corn and mash potatoes. Living in the Midwest...these will be better steaks than the best restaurants offer. Can’t wait for tomorrow! Happy Thanksgiving to all!

#55 4 months ago

Use the iron skillet/oven method. Best steak ever.

#56 4 months ago

It’s either that, or since it’ll be nice tomorrow...lump coal grilling. Gotta get the sear and medium-rare to medium. Oooohhh, so good.

Awesome creamed corn recipe. We like to mix this with the leftover mashed potatoes.

I’ve got a 15 1/2 lb turkey soaking in an Apple brine to go on the smoker in the morning.

As long as you bought it and threw it in the freezer before the salmineo outbreak, you should be good.

As always making my mashed potatoes. If I don't make my 10lbs mother in law get's to make her baked mash potatoes...or twice cooked...or some god awful shit that's isn't mashed. Sometimes you don't fuck with the OR.
I mean unless it's goddamn ribeyes...that sounds perfect to me.

As long as it is a thick cut and rare, count me in! Way better than that turkey they have conned us into eating this time every year.

Jeesh all the turkaholics and gravy junkies coming out of the woodwork.. you'd think this was a Pilgrim's Pride parade.

Well. last weekend when I was at the market picking up some baby backs for the smoker I saw they had a couple of nice turkey legs in a package at a fair price, so I grabbed them even though I had heard the news.

So i gave them a 24 hour brine and a good three hour smoke and cook. The other one didn't kill me and was really tender and tasty so I think it might be a good time for a nice little snack.

Damn that looks good!! My youngest daughter is all about smoked turkey legs.

The recipe was supposed to get them as close as possible to the ones they get $12 for at Disneyland that everybody is walking around with.

When I went there I could barely afford a hot dog, so I'm not sure how close they are.

Jack in the Box tacos were the best!
Notice I said were, as we haven't had a JITB around these parts since the early '80s.

I'm still eating turkey and if someone brings a Caesar salad I'll eat that too. We're actually doing a pinheads Friendsgiving. I think my stuffing contribution is probably safe if bacon, kielbasa, bread, celery, onions and mushrooms aren't on the recall list. And if not, 350 degrees for an hour should kill basically anything. Here's a photo of it before baking.

We enjoy the side dishes more than anything. We were just looking for something simple and quick when we first tried it. It is a really good creamed corn recipe, especially if you luck into some super sweet corn.

If I stuff the turkey with White Castle stuffing, and then get the Hershey Squirts, how will I know if it's from the Sliders or the Salmonella?

Glad I waited because it is eggs benedict I am craving today. And i know just the place.

Happy Thanksgiving All. That's my spread. I ruin the turkey every year, but this year it didn't come out that bad.

We ended up doing what we did last year. I took my daughter and mom to the Black Bear diner. It is a fairly large chain that has great food and serves lots of it.

It was kind of late in the afternoon so instead of Eggs Benedict, I ordered a California Burger and fries.

If they had bothered to tell me they were out of avocado (key ingredient in any Ca. burger) before it was delivered to the table, I probably would have gone with the eggs benedict instead. But it was good enough and we got full so I guess that's all that really matters.

Happy Thanksgiving!

They still are! I eat them once in a while and they are pretty much the same mystery meat deep fried treats they always were. Same taco sauce too. Now they are two for a dollar.

There are JITB all over the place here and one is across the street from the Black Bear we ate at today and I think I saw one car go thru the drive thru while we were there, but really wasn't paying much attention.

Screw the usual Turkey at the SoCal casino buffet. Get something different.

Are you out there in Indian country today? I remember when the first casino opened up . Big business now.

Is that the one in La Habra (the only one I've seen)? If it is it's next to one of my new favorite places: Raising Cane's

I channeled my inner Cordelia Knott this year by heeding this thread’s advice to ditch the tainted romaine and turkey for cornbread chicken pot pie with red mash and always satisfying Ocean Spray jellied cranberry.

I was out in CA a few years ago, and had to get me some JITB tacos. Of course had to do the In and Out Burger ritual too. Went to a Del Taco too, which I had never heard of before.
I recall the very last time I visited the JITB we had here, probably around 1980. It may have been the only time I ever used the drive-thru, and I got a dozen tacos to go. Then I went to a friend's party with them. He had a wood stove going in his garage, and I wanted to keep them warm. He gave me some foil to wrap them in and I put them on the stove. Later, I went back to have a few, but by then they were all scarfed up by some of the other party goers! Man, was I bummed!

No it's on Harbor in Fullerton in front of Ralphs. Where Cocos used to be and before that Carrows and even before that Bob's Big Boy.

There is no substitute for that canned jellied cranberry. It's so good. That pot pie looks amazing as well. I'll have to try that.

Okay, I checked online and see there are locations in La Habra, the one in Fullerton and one in Buena Park that are reasonably close to me.
I will have to try them out one of these days.

#95 4 months ago

No that's Turkey legs and wings I slow smoked yesterday after soaking in brine overnight. Just like the ones they sell for $12 each at Disneyland, maybe better.

In one foil was potatoes, red bell and habanero peppers, and red onions. The other was chuck steak seared and then slow simmered in beer for three hours.

The conversation came up that I should probably run a food truck and sell these items from it, but that sounds like too much work.

That sounds like a sure way to take all the enjoyment out of it.

Our family tradition is lasagna, but this year we had "chew & spew" (all you can eat) sushi. Lasagna was Friday's dinner.

Indeed. My buddy said his friend decided to run a food truck and then he got fat and died of a heart attack.

I think it is true you really need to keep on sampling what you are making to make sure it stays consistent.

On the news last night they told us it is once again safe to eat romaine lettuce... as long as it doesn't come from California.
