    since i am "damned yankee", i didn't know you could deep fry a turkey until a few thanksgivings ago! Deep frying is for fries, and fish right? I am spoiled on the deep fried turkey now- cant eat it any other way! it comes out better tasting and juicier then a conventionally cooked turkey (in 1/3 the time). mmmmmm, getting hungry...

    i'll bring the sweet potato casserole- Mrs. Quinn makes a sweet potato casserole that is to die for- almost tastes like a dessert- sweet potatos, brown sugar and real cranberries...

    On the subject of deep-fried turkeys, they seemed to be very popular in the southern states when I lived in Florida. I was a guest where someone cooked one and everyone pounced on it, especially the crispy skin.

    On the subject of vegetarian turkey, Tofurkey...ICK! There is, however, a turkey substitute that sells under the brand-name Quorn and is made out of type of fungi related to the mushroom and truffle family. It's GOOD! The first time I tried it, I thought it was turkey. My mom, who wouldn't knowingly eat something like that, also thought it was turkey. It looks like a turkey breast roast and is stringy like turkey and everything. Even their "chicken" nuggets aren't bad...certainly no worse than process/formed-type chicken nuggets.

    I buy lots of Quorn stuff...here's a link if anyone's interested.

    Also, I'll bring the Quorn turkey!

    I know this feeling. We will sometimes do 2 birds (16 - 18 lbs) for the extended family. Different injection marinades though.

    One year we all went to my aunt's for Thanksgiving. The turkey was dry but, the travy was dryer! I kept pouring the gravy over the turkey with almost every bite (no seconds) and the turkey just sucked up the gravy like quicksand (perhaps too much flour). Anyway, I stuffed myself on whipped candied yams. Later on I saw the National Lampoon's Thanksgiving turkey and thought that dry thing looked familiar. My aunt is such a good cook but turkey just ain't her thing!

    All I care about is...

    "Who's making the mashed potatoes and gravy?"

    This is my absolute favorite thing in the whole world. I can skip the turkey, skip the dressing, skip the pumpkin pie, just BRING ON THE POTATOES

    So, are we having cocktails in this thread yet? Hold the turkey, I need a drink!

    Although the fried turkey is sounding mighty tasty. Yum. :eat
