  1. C & I were discussing our turkey last night. He wants to brine it again like we did a few years ago. I used your recipe to do this. It is super yummy! The only change we are making this year is that we are smoking our turkey. If I don’t see you Sunday, I hope you have a blessed Thanksgiving!

  2. I went back and read your turkey post. Two things: Does the extra water in the bottom mess up the drippings for gravy? Gravy is very important to me. Also, I thought it was hilarious that you gave your wonderful recipe and then somebody in the comments decided that that was the perfect time to tell you how to make a turkey. Get your own blog, lady! 😉

      Thing 1: I think it would mess up the gravy, but I never make the gravy from the turkey drippings, so I don’t know. On the other hand, most of the water does evaporate by the time it is done, so… it *might* work. ???

      Thing 2: Hahahahaha!

  3. I just wanted to share our secret technique for thawing the turkey when it’s still rock hard the night before Thanksgiving 😉 Put it on a rack in the garage, and turn a fan on it. No heat required, it will stay cool and be 98% thawed by morning.
    Think I’m going to try your recipe this year, it sounds so good!

  4. Okay Smockity… I’m trusting you for my first turkey ever! I’m a bit scared, but excited all at the same time.
