As I’ve written before Thanksgiving is one of my very favorite holidays and my preparations are well underway already. I’ve got my chestnuts (ordered online from Allen’s). My turkey is on order (fresh but not free-range) and I’ll pick it up on Wednesday. I’ve got to pick up another turkey tomorrow since I always make one for the Little Brothers of the Poor.
I’ll be up at 4:00am on Thursday morning so I can get a good start on smoking my turkey. I’ve done this for a number of years now and nothing beats a freshly smoked turkey. It’ll be a challenge since it’s unseasonably cold here in Chicago right now.
I’ll be posting more later but here are my posts from last year collected and classified for you:

Next week I’ll post a soup recipe which is a great use for left-over turkey.
