Because we thought we were hosting Alex’s family for Thanksgiving we ordered a free-range turkey from Butcher’s Alley in Bethesda a few weeks ago. Since we didn’t host them and Alex and Andrew are vegetarians-who-will-eat-seafood-occasionally we thought it would be easier and more considerate if we didn’t have turkey on Thanksgiving. Dean promised, though, that he’d make me turkey over the weekend.
He smoked it on his Big Green Egg and it was good. Delightful even. Although, between you and me, I prefer roast turkey but he doesn’t like turkey so at least I get turkey when he smokes it.
