Finally get to post some pics of our Thanksgiving get together! We had about 36 for dinner! Started the 17# Prime Rib at about 9:30 in the BBQ. Tinderbox full of apple wood, filled it twice. I had to improvise for spices. Used lemon pepper, steak seasoning (montreal, I think) garlic pepper, and a few others. rubbed that in & let it sit for an hour or so while I got the BBQ warmed & the tinderboxes packed (I use 2). The 17# turkey was to be bathed in oil (350 deg F) but it only takes about 3 mins per pound so it sat in the oven warming & drying for a good long time. Forgot the injection seasoning for it so gave the bro-in-law (Owns The Breakfast Club in Auburn CA) a bottle of italian dressing & showed him the spice cupboard, the food processor and got out of his way. We sat down to feast at about 2:30-3:00, but not before I kicked it a bit w/ a niece.
Mmmmmmmmm, dead cow.
Now That's a good lookin bird!
Shot a little pool on the back deck while we smelled the vittles.
Here's the bro-in-law & myself slicin & dicin.
We have a large family & we all get together at either Thanksgiving or Christmas every year. I pray that we comtinue to do so. The wife & I are the only ones who don't have any kids, so we host. Everyone helps-out, and the weather has cooperated so far so we can get outside to play pool and get some air.
Hope that everyone had a great Thanksgiving and Christmas, and Happy New Year!
