More Thanksgiving

We always have a smoked turkey for our meat for Thanksgiving.  We buy a frozen Norbest Smoked Turkey.  We thaw it out for four days in the refrigerator.   When you remove the turkey from the packaging, there will be a good bit of water.  Phillip removes the packaging from the turkey with the turkey in the kitchen sink.  Next, he removes the turkey neck from the turkey cavity.  He has a pan ready with aluminum foil in the bottom.  The pieces of aluminum foil are long pieces that once the turkey is placed in the pan you will be able to bring each end of the aluminum foil together over the top of the turkey to form a tent.  The turkey needs to be completely covered in foil.  We bake the turkey at 350 degrees for 3 hrs.  This is a very moist, delicious smoked turkey.

Sister Schubert's Dinner Yeast Rolls are the rolls served at our house. 

I love sweet potato casserole with each bite of dressing that I eat.  Phillip loves candied yams, so we have both with our Thanksgiving and Christmas meals.  You may choose one or the other or like us you may want both.
