    I smoke an 18 pound turkey last night for six hours using hickory.

    Now, me and the kid are making a key lime pie. He is fascinated
    by how egg whites and sugar turn into a merengue. I can't explain
    it myself.

    Sorry, no pics. Battery dead and too lazy.


    Oh, new pot of turkey stock in the crockpot too. It smells good in here. [​IMG]

    Everyone come on over. We love to cook for friends.

    The key lime is sort of a cheat. I bought a chocolate pie crust and
    a lime filling mix. The Merengue is real, right from the chickens vent
    plus the whipped cream is heavy cream, sugar, and vanilla.

    Now the turkey is 100% home grown. [​IMG]

    Oh man that sounds good. Especially the turkey.

    Have you been eating the deer you processed? Sorry if you've posted about it, I've probably missed a few threads here and there. [​IMG]
