So my wonderful sister in law is hosting this year, and I hope she does not know my user name. She is a GREAT woman but couldn't cook a hot pocket. Before deciding to learn how to cook, she has decided to reinvent what we eat on the great day of fatness! I talked to my brother yesterday to establish the time and asked what I should bring. He cordially said they had it all covered. I said well let me do something, he said she made about 15 pies all the usual good stuff and a bought 14lbs of chicken, you just bring the beverages. I said "A CHICKEN" why no turkey, well she wants to change things up he says. I said " if you want to change things up cook a groundhog, I eat chicken 5 days a week" he agreed but you know the saying.

I am polite and thankful for her efforts so their will be nothing but smiles when she rolls out her GD chicken.

I will bring the beverages and alot of them!

I also will take to my grave that a bird that cant fly and has male genitalia for a neck should be shot and eaten on thanksgiving.

Happy Thanksgiving folks!

Cook a secret turkey and when she brings her chicken "accidentally" drop it to the ground and take the turkey out

Well, we all like to be different.

I've been contemplating a goose this year for xmas in England, not sure how it will cook on the smoker but it is making its way to the top of the list.

The main question on my lips....

Where the bloody hell did she find a 14lb chicken?

It will be tough as old boots!

I'm with you ...

I have never in my life seen a 14lb chicken for sale.

I may have heard the weight wrong, 4lbs is more likely, or my brother said it wrong, That's just what was in my head. Now that I picture a 14lb chicken, highly unlikely

ETA- Just texted my brother...2, 7 pound chickens. he said he told me 14 pound's of chicken. feeding about 25 or so

She got a turkey.
No way she found a chicken that big...

But I guarantee that she will over cook the bird and turn the Breast into a desert waste land.

People use that damn pop up thermostat.....ugh..

And stuffing is evil!

Turkeys can fly.

I've a spot on the property with a huge cedar that they roost in.

They really can't get out of the tree very gracefully however... it's like watching Turkey bombs falling when they get up in the morning.

Makes for a super-easy Thanksgiving meal though...

I know they can glide into the ground, not technically flying though is it?

Yup. I'm still dealing with my weekly meal prep of chicken breast. Not sure why I decided to cook up 12 breasts and the accompanying tenders. Call me crazy but I planned for me AND my wife to start cutting calories. Well. I totally forgot about Turkey day this week. Guess what we're eating tonight?

I decided to go with a chicken this year. Heard too many stories about the turkeys being recalled and just decided to play it safe. asked beforehand, and no one really cared anyways and it doesn't help that one has to work today so its a choice of either waiting and cooking it up this weekend when hopefully we can all sit and eat before 7:30 tonight or having it late tonight. what can I say, the danged employers blew our thankgiving out a few years ago. it's danged near impossible to come up with a time where everyone is off work at the same time.

still debating on what we are eating tonight. maybe the chicken, maybe something else. the something else would be more convenient for everyone but the sell by date on the chicken is tomorrow.. so, who knows...

If the sell date is tomorrow you'll be fine for a bit. just freeze it

I don't want to freeze it today, just to take it out of the freezer tomorrow to make sure it's unthawed for saturday??? I am tempted to just hope and pray it can last till saturday though.
