I am wondering what folks are cooking this year. I imagine several of us are planning food and beer for the holidays.

I started tonight:

2 turkeys- one for the smoker, one to fry (wife's request)
5lbs of pepperoni- simple ground beef recipe
Fattys- testing one this week with ground turkey, yams, cranberry and mashed taters in the middle.
Oysters- 200 at the roast last week, more to come.

The Pumpkin Ale is drinking well, the ESB is about ready (RIP Rover), and there is Graff to go around as well.

I would love to see who is doing what.

I am changing the fatty to ground turkey with some pork sausage filled with stuffing, mashed taters and cranberry sauce. Maybe a couple sweet tater pieces.


The meat is mixed for the pepperoni. I linked the wrong recipe... I add more spices than the one above. It is in the fridge to mellow for 24 hours.

and fatties are yummy for sure. I get requests for them ALOT around the holidays.

brisket. good.

ohhh.. brisket! There's absolutely nothing better. Up here in Cleveland, that's not really a traditional holiday dinner. Wish it was! I'll be frying up a turkey next Thursday and the SWMBO's mother is cooking the "standard" thanksgiving dinner.

I made a pumpkin cheesecake a few days ago, making chili in a day or two, other than that... heading to Florida for Thanksgiving and leaving the cooking to family.
