I don’t want to put a damper on the smoked turkey suggestion - it seems to be the front runner. But here… My cousin gets a smoked and a roasted turkey every year. I try the smoked every time and every time I’m glad she also gets a roasted one. Maybe it’s me, maybe it’s the brand, but it always tastes too smokey and lighter fluid-y. Others seem to enjoy it, though. Then again I cannot imagine not having turkey sandwiches about 10 different ways over the following days and I don’t want ‘em all smoked (one maybe). Also, what about gravy? I’ve been tempted to get a deep fried turkey, but I’d still have to roast a chicken and buy innards to make gravy - I love me some gravy. I say go with the Gelsons, Bristol Farms, Whole Foods suggestions. But that’s just me. Have I mentioned how much I love Thanksgiving?
P.S. Congrats on your your impending bundle of joy!
