It all looks wonderful!  Love how you utilized the WFO and your fleet of kamados for the cooks. Wow!


Surprisingly the timing for all this was really easy. Fired up all 4 grills and just let the kamados ride at the desired temperature until the WFO/turkey was getting close then put the sides in the kamados. Everything finished at the same time. The only things cooked in the house oven was the pumpkin pie and the rolls. In hind sight should have done those in a kamado also.

How long for the bird to cook?




A bit over 2 hours. I put it on @ 500* as the temp was dropping. When it came off temp was down to 350*. I had carrots in the bottom to keep the turkey above the gravy/drippings. Backbone up for the first 45 mins then breast up to finish.

This is definitely a "because I can" cook!!  But I've never heard of a pineapple casserole.  Everything else yep, I'm there.


Oh my.... you should try @skreef‘s pineapple casserole!  I found the recipe in the desserts section I think and tried it for my copy cat cook. It was very very good. :)

That's a great looking cook (and meal) except...except...it's Thanksgiving!  Where's the pecan pie?  In my family you have a little slice of pumpkin pie to be traditional and polite and then get a big slice of pecan pie.


Well it was only 3 of us. Mrs skreef and my son wanted pumpkin pie and I wanted a chocolate pie. Maybe Christmas we'll go Pecan.

Okay, then I'll share my recipe for "Deep Dish Butterscotch Toffee Pecan Pie":


4 large eggs

3/4 cup sugar

1/2 teaspoon salt

1-1/2 cups dark corn syrup

1/4 cup heavy cream

1 teaspoon vanilla extract (the best you can find)

2 cups pecan pieces

1/2 cup Heath Bar bits or chopped up Heath Bar


1.  Preheat oven or cooker to 350 F.

2.  Prepare your favorite pie dough and line a deep dish pie pan

3.  In a bowl beat together the eggs, sugar and salt.  Add the corn syrup,  cream and vanilla and whisk until everything is combined and mixture is frothy.

4.  Spread the pecans and Heath Bar bits on the bottom of the pastry shell and pour in the filling.  Bake until firm, about 1 hour.

5.  Serve warm with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.


This is kind of a "grown-up" pecan pie, not as sweet as some of the recipes I've tried.  This was adapted from a Emeril Lagasse recipe and tweaked over the years.
