I'm going up to Chicago to celebrate Thanksgiving with my brother and his fiancee. He put me in charge of the turkey and I'm going to be making this beer-brined birdie with my homebrew wheaty pale ale:

There are a lot more beer-themed Thanksgiving dishes here, for anyone interested:

Interesting. I've cooked red meat with beer before, but not a bird. We usually soak it in apple juice. Might just have to try beer.

I had planned to buy a turduchen, but by the time I pay for over night air, the damn thing will run me about 250 bucks.

Thank you for those links, peter.

Looks like the family is having a beer-brined turkey smile

Where in Chicago are you going to be?

My brother lives in the neighborhood east of Humboldt Park. I'll be there for a week starting this Sunday, with time to spare for meetups. smile

I realize you are in charge of the Turkey, but this recipe we did a couple years ago for a colonial day at the kids school, it has now become a family tradition for us and is absolutely delicious.

Started beer brining the turkey in Hefeweizen tonight. 36 hours of brining goodness. I'm excited.

Also going to take a stab at making the gravy and the mashed potatoes.

Thanks for the links!

Seen Yesterday.
Billboard sign on Gigantic Alcohol Mart:

Thanksgiving is for Families
We Have Liquor

Amen.

Oh, and Tom. If no one here can provide what you need (I'd be truly sp, sp, speechless), I can make one phone call. Lemme know.
