I Am Grilling the Turkey

Yes...I mean, no, my stove is not hooked up yet, but the turkey will be cooked! I primed the grill last night (in other words, I made sure it was working) and I have all the ingredients, sufficient propane, and the weather looks like it will hold (high 40s).

Anyone else done this?

Pies will be cooked tonight. Bread pudding will cook during dinner, so it's hot for serving. Side dishes are coming with the guests. Libby (home for the long weekend!) is in charge of the stuffing--apple 'n' onion stuffing--and giblet gravy.

We'll have wine, and egg nog. Brie...crackers, chips, salsa, guacamole. Am I missing anything?

Ah. Music. There will be music. And it'll be live. Happy Thanksgiving!!

We have grilled the turkey several times, in even colder weather. ONe thing we have done is to coat the outside of the turkey with mayonnaise. It sounds odd, but the mayonnaise really keeps the bird moist. Happy Thanksgiving!

Thanks for the tip, Paula! I was hoping I'd get some input from those in colder climes! Just the info I needed!

Happy Thanksgiving!
