Prime rib here as well. Reverse sear on the Egg. Besides wild mushroom bread pudding, the sides are still being considered.

It was just going to be me and gf on xmas day this year so I wanted to do a stuffed pork loin roast with a stuffing very similar to turkey dressing..it has dried apricots, cinnamon, and the usual suspects(shallots, celery, etc) in it...keeping with tradition, I would still have gravy, and mashed taters with it..and I would make an orange sauce to compliment the meat..but...we've since had a few family members added to the dinner list so now we have a big ol' frozen turkey rolling around in the trunk of the car. Every time we take a corner I hear the body rolling around...makes me think of the movie Good Fellas...

The tarp, rope, and cinder blocks are supposed to keep the "turkey" from rolling around, Rock.

Jus' sayin'...

Growing up, turkey was always for Thanksgiving, beef roast for Christmas, and pork roast for New Year's. One Christmas Mom decided to stray from the norm and roasted a capon for Christmas. Turns out there were no leftovers. Sad. We went back to big beef roasts on Christmas.

Hi, Power-op. Is the ham a fresh leg or shoulder, or is it already cured in some way before you pit it?

Its an already cooked spiral cut one. But by doing it on the smoker the oven will be free for other things.

I was going to just get a pizza or Chinese food for Christmas, but I have so much food in my freezer left over from this month, I thought maybe I should save the money and just have something homemade, like meatloaf or a chicken breast.

I am feeling very grateful when it comes to food this year. In a little over 2 years of cooking at home as opposed to eating out or buying pre-made food, I have gone from running out of food three weeks into the month to having enough food to get me more than halfway through the next month. I now worry about having too much food and I know that's something not too many people can say in this country. Believe me, the fact that I can, makes me very humble.

Hi powerplantop. Good to see you again. You should show up more often.
