Finally not cooking everything this year. Only 5 adults and 1 child (and an infant), so my parents are buying the turkey and it comes with gravy and stuffing from the country club down the street. I will make potatoes and some other sides, but we do a turkey trot in the morning and trying to do a whole turkey taking up the whole oven in a short period of time is a pain in the ass. This will be much less stressful for everyone.
What's everyone doing for Thanksgiving this year?
Our overall plans haven't changed in a while. Dinner with the family at my brother-in-law's house. I'll be cooking the turkey again this year, which I think is the 12th year in a row for me making the turkey. I had always done in the in the Charbroil Big Easy, but I got rid of that after a decade of service. I did the turkey sous vide last year, and it was great. Finishing it in the oven wasn't fun given I was fighting for space with everyone else, so I plan on finishing in their electric smoker this year. I'll do 12+ hours in the sous vide, and I'm thinking 1-2 hours in the smoker to finish it.
