    Math quiz... What is 1095 divided by 365? Yep! You guessed it!

    3 years and I'm still recovering. Still beats the alternatives though.

    Not much going on in my life other than fattening up and spending a majority of my time at home.
    I need to get out and do stuff. Maybe soon! Hopefully soon!

    Daughter is going to Disneyland for Thanksgiving break which leaves me solo for TG.
    Somehow, I ended up being cajoled into hosting for 19 people (family)
    So I'm going to try smoking a turkey... I hear you can get a wicked high from it. :lol3

    Anyhow, I hope everyone is doing well. My spirits are on the upswing for the first time in a very long time.
    Even my daughter (10) commented that I finally smiled for real for the first time that she can remember.

    Glad to read this, healing is difficult, especially when one has a catastrophic crash. I don't recommend smoking the turkey they are a bitch to keep lit. :rayof

    It feels like you are in great spirits too. If your 10 year old gives you the thumbs up, you know you are doing well. Happy entertaining!

    Oh man, you're scaring me! I've never smoked a turkey before but how hard can it be right?
    Anyhow a whole turkey got the thumbs down on a whole one because nobody wants the dark meat.
    2x10lb turkey breast and a request for some sort of smoked beef as well... and a smoked pumpkin pie and smokey mashed potatoes and... I'm going to count on 5-6 hours for cooking the bird
    Yeah, I told them they can show up any time and get to all that. :lol3

    I hope this is the year the turkey will be perfect for you.

    I trust you'll get it perfect--from your other posts I think you've got a handle on slow cooking :)

    You sure are lucky. Speed of 70 + mph vs barbed wire, I don't think anyone can survive that. You should thank your gears because if you didn't have them you wouldn't be here posting on this forum. Get well soon, don't underestimate lacerations, it may cause infection.

    I only like the dark meat!
    FYI
    Walmart has both smoked whole and Breast with rib meat. Just an FYI in case you need a backup plan
    Happy Thanksgiving
