Default I hate Turkey, anyone else?

Yea I know you brine it, inject it, smoke it, fry it, spatchcock and grill, bake and roast etc etc and ya’ll rave how great it is. Truth be told, I’ve prepared turkey just about every way possible and had plenty of compliments on the finished product. This year, I have 2 fresh yardbirds in my basement fridge, one will get injected, spatchcocked and cooked on the egg, the other injected and deep fried in peanut oil. I’ll butcher the yardbirds up real pretty and serve those nasty fukcers on 2 separate platters, my guest will devour them along with gallons of homemade giblet gravy and mountains of dressing with as much sausage as bread in it.

I get nauseated just thinking about the sights and smells.

As a kid we had yardbird at both Thanksgiving & Christmas, I used to ask for anything different at Christmas Dinner but my vote didn’t count. This year I have talked negatively enough about the nasty crow that my wife no longer appreciates my humor. Servings 12 for dinner, all demand nasty traditional Thanksgiving tripe. I’d gladly serve them ribeye & scallops if they’d let me.

I was never thrilled with turkey but what put me over the top with my revulsion to yard bird was my wife’s eating habits when she is in fitness mode, which she frequently is. She eats “GROUND TURKEY” quite possibly the nastiest $hit that has ever been created. The container of meatballs made with that nasty grey $HIT sitting in my fridge will bring the bile up in my throat. I’d rather eat a maggot casserole then attempt a pice of the incredibly nasty lumps of $HIT combined with spinach that she bakes and calls it “Turkey Meat Loaf” .

My God it’s dreadful.

Not a fussy eater, will eat just about anything that comes from the ocean cooked or raw and have enjoyed unknown street food in places like Thailand, Philippines and Korea, there is just something about Turkey that turns me the fukc off, even the word sounds gross.

Aside from that Happy Thanksgiving...........

I like it once a year with mash potatoes, dressing and gravy. I also love a good turkey sandwich. Then I'm done until next year.

And I like the mashed taters and carmelized/crispy stuffing with sausage and dried cranberries on Turkey day.

However I prefer spiral ham with mac/cheese and flaky biscuits. But that's for Xmas. And then ham sandwiches, ham biscuits, ham and eggs, etc etc.

Not a huge fan of turkey but frying one is a good excuse to sit in the yard and get drunk

Agreed, but smoking it gives you more time for consumption.

My MIL and BIL will fight over the turkey butt! She will be with us tomorrow, and I bet she won't eat anything but that fatty part. Fine with me, leaves me more of the good stuff.
