    Question How do you do your Turkey?

    Advertisements
    If you have turkey on thanksgiving how do you "do it"? Do you buy one pre-made, bake your own, or hunt/butcher one??
    My dad always goes turkey hunting on Thanksgiving and if he gets one then mom makes that. If not she goes to the store and buys one and pops it in the oven.

    When we have Thanksgiving at our house or at my parents house, my husband deep fries them.

    When he was deployed, he didn't want my son and I to try to deep fry it by ourselves, so I got a smoked turkey from a BBQ place. We have since PCSed from that area and my son is still there for college. Last year we went to and this year we are going to his place for Thanksgiving and got the smoked Turkey from the BBQ place.

    I kinda hate roasting turkey now that I've had deep fried and smoked. I will never roast one again.

    We bake it. At home we always ate around 2pm, so hunting it the day of wouldn't have worked out turkey season where I'm from is in March I think. This year I've got some frozen meat leftover from our Oct. Thanksgiving so im going to make some kind of crockpot all in one meal.

    I always make post-thanksgiving soup from the carcass and leftovers.
    My BIL usually deep fries a turkey. But he won't be here, and DH is working that day, so we'll just eat on the ship.

    Though I did see a recipe for slow-cooker turkey on pinterest. Seemed intriguing, maybe a good way to avoid the trap of too dry turkey.

    I put bake but we don't always. If we're just doing a turkey breast then I use the slow cooker. I used to have a roaster but DH and I can't for the life of us figure out what happened to it. And in FL we used to fry it.

    Bake my own. I won't eat anything that's hunted by someone I know. I have to buy all my meat.
