    Tried something new this year and it was great. Bought the 4 Rivers precooked smoked turkey. Buddy invited me to his turkey fry with full Bloody and Mimosa bar. Fried it for 6 minutes and it was the perfect blend of fried and smoked. Cut like butter and wonderfully moist. The Bloody’s were pretty damn good too!

          I’m like the “Old Man” in A Christmas Story, a turkey junkie. I like it anyway I can get it. We’ll have a smoked one and one traditionally roasted in the oven. The latter we brine and stuff with celery, carrots, onions and apples, then rub the skin with some Mazola and black pepper, dust with flour and place it in a browning bag in the roaster and let the oven work it’s magic. After it’s done, we take the stock and make the giblet gravy. It’s always good.

              I buy it at the store when my wife asks me too... tomorrow it will come out perfect with perfect gravy 'n schit. It's magic, like laundry and dishes.

                Seedy’s dad did something similar but would cook it fully, then turn the oven off and let it sit to ensure it was the texture of shoe leather. I couldn’t take it anymore so we took over cooking the turkeys. I’d cook four every thanksgiving. Some were smoked and some oven roasted. Did this for 10 years ...until that one year almost everyone got food poisoning and I never had to cook again! :bwahaha:

                Edit: it was actually Christmas Eve and it took 24-48 hours for it to set it. We traveled to FL on Christmas Day and had to stop at Denny’s buffet for lunch. We were certain that’s what did it until the other family members started calling. Nobody will ever forget that Christmas. :headslap:

                  First real job out of UF at some nuke plants in southern New Jersey. I sure as fuch was not going to live in southern New Jersey. 4 of us car pooled and drove 60 miles to work. We had 2 rules: we leave the meeting spot at 6:00 AM, no waiting. And no talking allowed in the car. You got a solid week to be the driver, then 3 weeks off. The commuting during those 4 years solidified that I will never have a commute like that ever again in my life.

                  I lived all over the place in the 4 years that I worked there. Lived in South Philly for a year. Even lived in Elkton Maryland for awhile. I had to drive through 3 states when I lived there. I came to conclusion: that entire region is just a terrible place to live. All of it. If I had to do it now (which WILL NOT happen)... I would absolutely pick the southern New Jersey side. Very north central Florida like.

                      My favorite sub sandwich place in the US was a place in Delaware and they always had a Thanksgiving sub. Fresh oven roasted turkey slices, stuffing, cranberry, and mayo on a sub. Just incredible.

                          yeah - no kidding
                          we had the fryer on the back patio
                          fortunately it was out from under the roof just enough
                          scared the stuffing out of us.

                            btw... does anyone else like this dessert item straight from heaven?
                            seems like I'm the only one in my immediate family who loves it... the others are repulsed by its mere presence.

                              Smoking three (been brining for a few days already) and frying four.

                              I like both methods but you really can’t beat prep and cooking time needed for fried turkey—just make sure it’s well thawed and dry when you drop it in the oil.

                                Same... Fried.

                                We tried it a few years ago for the first time.
                                Didn't know you were supposed to completely thaw the turkey before dropping it in the grease.
                                oops.

                                My bro-in-law also fries his and he has an injection kit for putting in spices.
