I love how perfect my mind-accent for this is. <3 I think it comes from when I used to read Brian Jacques.

Really? I'm the only one so far who has responded to this thread, and actually celebrates thanksgiving?

I have to say that, more often than not, I don't really enjoy the turkey because people take it out of the oven at 180. Little do they know that the meat keeps cooking when they take it out of the oven. And there you have it, the secret reason that turkey is so often dry. So, next time, try pulling it out at 165 and see how great your turkey turns out.

Also, it helps to actually not stuff the turkey, and rather make a spread (butter, paprika, lard, rosemary, lemon grass, sage, tarragon, sea salt, crisco, thick turkey stock, and pork fat all go well in it) to lather under the skin. The stuffing in the turkey actually dries it out.

Lastly, take some cheese cloth, soak it in hot water, and squeeze it out before covering the turkey with it. This ensures that you loose no moisture in the process and gives you a perfect brown on the outside.

Now, what do I prefer to do on thanksgiving? Well, I wrap a chicken in tin foil (after giving it a rub and basting it) and set it vertically on a cookie sheet with an open can of Hoogarden (a german wheat lager) or pale ale stuck inside of the chicken.

I then set that bad boy on the grill and if I cook it just right, it comes out one of the most flavorful chickens you've ever had. You see, the beer slowly condenses into the chicken and imparts it's wonderfully full flavor of alcohol, wheat, and hops.

Also, I use the drippings in the cookie sheet to make some country gravy, and make yeast biscuits to finish the meal. I might use blanched kale or arugula for a salad, and mandarins oranges, my garden's tomatoes, and some of the olives I've cured in the salad.

Now, who wouldn't love a thanksgiving meal like that?

No, wait, I mean I WOULD love a meal like that!  I don't suppose you'd care to come over to South Korea for Christmas and cook it for us?

I just want you to know that I'm lust-crushing over you right now. <3 Men that can cook.

... I mean, I AM a man who can cook, but I do well because of genetics and luck. I don't know WHY the food I cook turns out so good. Seriously, though... shoving a can of beer into a chicken? <3 I love you. xD

I'm vegetarian. No chicken for me.

Anytime a man mentions sticking a can of beer in a chicken like that, it's bound to spark up a bromance, so I don't blame you for that.

Hell, I should tell you guys some of my baking recipes if you liked that so much!

That sounds utterly awesome.  I've never cooked chicken with beer--white wine, Italian salad dressing, orange juice--but not beer.  I use beer for pot roasts and beef stew (as well as drinking it occasionally).   I will have to try that.


Brining a chicken/turkey is also a good way to make sure it's moist and tender--AND tastes really good.   Just a thought.


Kudos to you vegans, I know it's a healthier lifestyle.  But I have to admit to being an omnivore myself.   :D

Vegans?  huh How do you guys get along, then? What do you cook? Of course, there are some Ashrams in India and some others in China (they make a delightful kind of weird, black bean gelatin and fungal tofu)  who make great vegan and vegetarian meals, but what is it that you guys bring to the dinner table, if I might ask?
