    I heard that ham is the new turkey.

    I enjoy a few pieces of it, but you cannot overdo it. I found 3-5oz of turkey to be a perfect serving along with other thanksgiving related items. No I do not measure it, just an observation.

    I'm a turkey fiend. I'm that old guy on A Christmas Story that can't lay off the bird.

    I like turkey, - especially hot turkey sandwhiches piled with turkey, dressing, & mashed potatoes with tons of gravy on top. With cranberries on the side - that is deliciousness on your plate There's additional satisfaction in going out and bagging a wild turkey for yourself. (Though, admittedly a lot of work compared to buying some factory bird.) For a year or two the guys in the family who traditionally do the holiday cooking, deep fat fried the turkeys. Delicious & moist. The best turkey I'd had. Unfortunately, that was a lot of work & hassle so they went back to the old method. Tends to be dry. -- Though I like turkey, I'll go for prime rib or ham before that.

    A most excellent bird. I either get a Greenberg turkey, or a Honey Baked Ham. Then make a bunch of stuffing and mashed taters, and buy a mountain of those Kings Hawaiian Rolls.

    A half a box of cigars, and a really good bottle of Single Malt Scotch or small batch Bourbon are also necessities. The new son-in-law is coming along quite nicely. He brought over my quite adorable granddaughter, and a pair of Partagas cigars.

    Learning has occurred.

    I put it in the sink covered with water the day before Thanksgiving, it is thawed by the evening when it goes back in the fridge. Cooking doesn't take that long, for me it takes about 3 hours start to finish.

    Personally I think most people have had the usual butchered turkeys that are way over cooked, when prepared properly turkey can be as moist and juicy as a chicken. It just takes proper technique, and tools.

    FWIW I've had turkey that has been brined, among other prep methods, and it's just not my thing. Short of General Tso's turkey I've had it most ways.
    Think for yourself. Question authority.

    As I learned in one of my very first apartments away from home, the definition of "eternity" is "two people and one turkey".
