2011 marked my fourth Pre-Thanks with my buddies! Remember last year?
Jake and Annie were our wonderful hosts this year. There were close to 20 people at Pre-Thanks and TONS of awesome food!
The turkey was smoked again this year. This time they brined it in jalapeno juice and used a dry rub for extra flavor.
This is the smoker that z (thanks to z’s sister and brother-in-law) gave to Dan and Jake last year. It has gotten some good use!
Lucy aka “The Goose” hung out
and drank a couple beers with us.
The turkey smoked for over 12 hours!! TIME TO EAT!
z got a little taste tester…
Multiple types of stuffing, including a homemade vegetarian cornbread stuffing!
Serve it up!
My beautiful plate: stuffing, monkey bread, asparagus, and yams!
A “rich red blend.”
The kids got seconds…
The lovely hosts!
Dan and Keelan!
Once the Budweiser came out, we knew it was time to go home.
Seems like this year ended the same as last year…
Another great pre-thanks! So much fun!
We are so thankful to have such great friends!
