We traveled for Thanksgiving so we celebrated at our home last night. We love cooking the Thanksgiving meal and the leftovers are not to be missed. This is our turkey. This bird is the word. I’m not joking – this is the best bird I’ve ever had. Grilled, on the Weber. Sprinkled with a dry-brine and rubbed down daily by my husband (aka “Grill Master”). He claims he’ll share the recipe but not today. The Washington Redskins are on network TV right now.
When I was growing up, my Dad always grilled our turkey on the Weber. I thought everyone did this. Luckily, my Dad trained my husband, Brad, and the family tradition continues. My brothers also grill their birds but there is no way they can compete with this bird. Seriously.
This year, my sister’s boyfriend grilled their bird. My sister, Mary, and her boyfriend, Weston, live in Anchorage, Alaska. There were several phone calls between Brad and Weston but the results were evidently quite tasty. Good job, Weston!
I love family traditions. Especially ones that involve grilled meat.
The tray that the turkey is on? It’s a second-hand-store-purchase, of course.
How was your Thanksgiving? Any family traditions you love?
