I just feel bad for people who grew up with parents or relatives feeding them dry stuffing and gloopy gravy. SAD.

That said, mixing family traditions is key. So Thanksgiving can always be upgraded. My wife's family is part Italian so every big holiday has a pasta (usually mostaccoli) and cannoli at dessert. Big time upgrades for Thanksgiving. Also stuffed mushrooms as an appetizer staple. I don't want Thanksgiving or Christmas without these and none are traditional fare. So by all means, improve Thanksgiving, but also learn to cook some stuffing properly.

Turkey is overrated. It’s one of the worst birds to eat, and I ate a pigeon once.

+1 for the Italian take on Thanksgiving. Despite being extremely irish, our tradition for 25 years or so was to have it at my aunt and uncle's and my aunt is Italian (and she cooked everything). We had all the staples plus italian sausage and cannoli and after a few years we only ate the turkey to be polite. Our food traditions here are pretty bland; mix that horsefeathers up and it's much more interesting

Turkey day with my iowa family sucked, with chicago was great, and with New Jersey is greater. Only downside is the lack of dedicated football watching at my in laws. They don’t host anymore though.

The only reason I even eat turkey is family tradition. After my parents pass, never again besides deli slices. Easter dinner, Christmas dinner, 4th of July BBQ > Thanksgiving.

i was never a turkey guy until i had smoked turkey. but still ham is better AND the major ham benefit is that the leftovers are so horsefeathering good. that's why even though we're having a four-person thanksgiving this week im cooking a 20 pound ham

A friend of the family from Louisiana once did a deep-fried turkey injected in cajun magic, and that beats any hypothetical ham.

IMO most turkey hate is because people haven't had a good one. It's real easy to screw up though so it's understandable. But good turkey is horsefeathering awesome.

That said, I made this last weekend just because pork shoulders were on sale:

And I feel like I might make it my go-to for one of the winter holidays. It's super great and super easy.

I started smoking turkeys several years ago and thats definitely all I want for turkey now. And I'm definitely a dark meat guy. It's different than ham. Both good. Serve both for Thanksgiving, by all means.

Any advice on smoking one? I’ve been YouTube researching and still open for suggestions
