It doesn't seem to be a very exciting method.

Our first fried turkey was at a 4CU Thanksgiving rally in Quartzsite a couple years back. The turkey was great. Those guys had it down to a science... I just admit I watched from a safe distance...but when it came time to dig in, it was up close and personal. Yummmmm.

For our two families we did fish and chips (that's fries for my southern neighbours) on Saturday and dipped the turkeys on Sunday. Great use of the oil and the fryer over two days. Wife has been walking two miles a day since to work off the calories - me, well I'm still exercising my elbow. Jury's out on which method will yield the better result. I'll take my chances on the elbow lift.

Anyone tried those infrared fryers? Have heard that you can cook turkey, pork, beef, whatever in them and the result is like a turkey fry without the oil, mess and heart stopping bad stuff.
Well, here on the westcoast of British California, the local yokels are foodies and health nuts.

Expect an oven-roasted organic free-range turkey with crab/cranberry dumplings and oyster dressing, followed by a run around the sea wall.

Sounds great, all that fresh sea air breeze. I could fit right in, and have the refreshments ready for entertainment after they get back from the run.

Tit for tat.
Fly at Night,

I bought my fryer last year, worked fine. This year we are heading a bit "up North" back to Ohio, taking fryer with us.

Going with the theme of bet you don't have, I'm going to take a large can of Boiled Peanuts for my Buckeye relatives to "enjoy". Some roadside stands here in SC will have signs out for hot or fresh boiled peanuts.

Gsin, jeeze....never heard of boiled nuts before either.

Obviously, I don't get out much.

Hopefully, the new Airstream will remedy that.

FAN,

I'm a Yankee by birth (Ohio) and as some might say, I got here (SC) as soon as I could. Not really wanting to hijack a thread, just enjoying different regional tastes.

I'm gonna link to Products - Margaret Holmes - McCall Farms for information on the boiled peanuts, but it takes several hours of boiling in a salt water to make them, then you shell and eat. The farm is less than an hour away from us.

From my Dad's area, Somerset PA:
Sugar Pie, lost Grandma's recipe for it, never have duplicated her touch.
Paunhaus and scrapple. Might be misspelled but these were my Grandparents tastes, I never aquired them.
We had family reunions and those PA Grandma's made an art out of cooking for them.

Ohio, well possibly, no make that really some of the best sweet corn grown, any corn from N. Ridgeville is top shelf. And the tast of Geauga Cnty. maple syrup on an all you can eat pancake fund raiser in the spring, that is a treat. Lets not overlook Lake Erie perch or walleye. I cannot pass on plugging Trail Bologna and a simple honest Swiss cheese from the area around Holmes County. It only needs a box of wheat thins.

OKC taught me about slow cooked in smoke BBQ, my personal favorite.

My 1st evening here in SC I watched a PBS show on regional BBQ here in the Carolinas, very studied approach to the absolute regional cooking methods and sauce approach. Mustard based, vinegar based or a catsup based sauce make the top choices and an invitation to a pig pickins can't be passed up. But after we moved here we discovered shrimp and grits. Don't knock it, ITS REALLY GOOD. SC caught shrimp is really worth the price. If you order breakfast and pass on grits as a side choice, I think they have you pegged as Yer'e not from here are ya! Don't get it started about I'll have a Coke, but make it a Mt. Dew or something. Or even think about ordering an UN-SWEETENED Tea. Rice and hash are a staple at almost all buffet lines and at the end you'll find fatback. Chicken bog is a fund raising tradition and often advertized by the Chef's name.

One other thing I have done in my travels is to ask for a local beer in what ever state I was in, usually something tasty was available that I had never tried. That worked really well until I was in St. Louis and the hostess dryly replied B U D.

This is part of the fun on a non traveling AirForum day, but we did spend the weekend in our in the backyard camp.

Happy Thanksgiving.

SCin:

Have heard of sugar pie in Quebec (the French part of Canada) but is another thing I have never seen here on the westcoast.

Flapper pie is considered to be an old Canadian classic. It originated in the prairies when there was no fresh fruit for pie in the winter. It is made with egg yolks, sugar, vanilla, and cream which is cooked then cooled, and poured into a graham-wafer crust and topped with meringue.
