    Speaking of turkeys and smoke I'm going to try my hand at supplementing the turkey with a smoked turkey breast this year. Any hints or advice on properly smoking a turkey?

    Why? Wild Turkey in my area at least is so tough and stringy that there is really no point killing one.

    Yes, I was just kidding, thus the winkie face.

    Less than two weeks before the year's greatest food holiday, Butterball, the nation's largest producer of turkeys, is warning of a shortage of birds.

    Butterball announced that it will be shipping out half as many large, fresh never-frozen turkeys to retailers this year. The company says many of its birds had trouble gaining weight during the production process. And though the cause of the problem remains a mystery, food distributors say their orders for turkeys 16 pounds and bigger have been slashed in half. Sixteen pounds is the national average for Thanksgiving holiday turkeys making this shortage a particularly concerning problem.

    This might not seem like a big deal to some but, I can think of a several dozen housewives/cooks who might be having a panic attack about now.
    Y'all can have mine. I'm not a big turkey eater. I'd rather smoke pork ribs most of the day. Ms. Thicket doesn't care one way or the other.










    Somedays I stop and ask myself if it is going to be worth the effort of chewing through the restraints.

    At our grocer, you buy a spiral cut ham and get a turkey free ( not Butterball)

    Buy an electric or charcoal smoker and follow the directions included. Thatz what we did.

    My Wife loves to smoking but might try frying one this year.
