(The Pioneer Woman)   Fark Food Thread: Sure, Thanksgiving is coming soon, but turkey can be enjoyed all year long. Besides.. what if you don't want a whole bird? Faires may be closing up but that doesn't mean you can't enjoy a mighty fine leg or breast at home, right?   ( thepioneerwoman.com) divider line

The state fair here in NC opened today, and they sell whole turkey legs there.  I'll get one on Saturday.

Turkey is gross. The only thing we need it for is to make the sides with the stock.

I think I'm going to smoke a prime rib this year. Not a big fan of turkey unless is deep fried.

Faires? Are you a mead aficionado, subby? Have you ever even kissed a wench?

I worked at a large hotel.
We cooked a few turkeys off every week.
The breasts were carved for club sandwiches.
The carcasses were stripped of meat and used for "chicken" salad.
The bones, for stock for soups.
Auguste Escoffier would have been proud.
Pro Tip: Put some Better than bouillon chicken base in your mayo when you make chicken salad.
Li'l dab'll do you.

A pioneer woman's fine leg or breast is always welcome, subby.  Like that's even in doubt.

I'd like to put forward a motion to make "sweet potatoes covered in marshmallows and nuts" a violation of the Geneva Conventions, and all attempts to cook it to be summarily rounded up and launched into the sun.

Turkey, other than being cheap as hell, sucks. I want AWESOME food on a holiday, not a big fu*king chicken.

I found out about Better Than Bullion earlier this week. That stuff is awesome.

I'm not a huge fan of the traditional turkey-dressing-mashed-potatoes dinner, and we're usually traveling somewhere that weekend anyway, often abroad. So it's become sort of a semi-tradition for us to eat Turkish instead of turkey for T-giving.

This. Leftover turkey sammiches are good and all but, for a holiday meal, I too, want awesome food.

There's a reason why nobody eats turkey legs at home. They suck.

2 years ago, I did 3 20lb birds for a semi family reunion with Alton's recipe.  Strange women wanted to have my babies after that dinner....I guess I over did the roofies seasoning....

Last Thanksgiving, I was the primary cook for my wife's entire family. I went with seared scallops and steaks instead of turkey. We also had mashed cauliflowers (which taste like mashed potatoes) and stuffing and gravy, as well as hot wings.

Turkey legs, thigh and all. Cook in broth for 20-30 minutes at a simmer, then cool, rub with your favorite poultry rub and some olive oil, then finish on a big-ass grill over medium heat for about 20 minutes, turning and brushing with Dinosaur brand barbecue sauce. "Dinosaur Legs". Which is scientifically correct. And they look very Flintstoney on the plate.

YOU'RE WELCOME.

I keep clicking but the page isn't loading. Did the link change?

We've been doing ours on the BBQ pit the last couple years. Brined first. Comes out like a smoked bird with a fried bird skin.

I do that for Christmas. Smoked turkey for Thanksgiving ain't too bad either. That, or a Ham.

Prime Rib n Lobster Tails are reserved for Christmas.  Been that way for 55 years in this fam damily.

I am the primary cook in my family and we had mostly traditional dishes, but I also made lasagna and gnocchi.  It was awesome.

I like turkey, but once a year is good.  It's really easy to get sick of quickly.  I love the week of turkey sandwiches afterward.

Can I come to your house for Xmas?

//we used to do that 25 years ago, sans the lobster tails. Big-ass piece of meat, 2 hours on the grill.

Little bit too much sugar in the brine (OJ and Apple Juice), and a little too heavy on the smoke in early cooking.

This the result a few years back with my bird in the smoker.  It actually tasted awesome, as long as you closed your eyes and tried not to think of eating a turkey that lived on a BP Oil Well in the Gulf.

By chocolate sauce do you mean mole? I make chicken mole sometimes, I imagine rabbit would be good too.
