Talkin’ Turkey and Being Thankful

Smoked TurkeyI hope you all enjoyed the official start of the holiday season with a most blessed and thankful Thanksgiving. Already having smoked two turkeys for our VFW Post Thanksgiving party last weekend I was well versed in the mechanics of adjusting and regulating the heat and smoke with our colder temperatures here at the BPU Compound. Our 16lb family turkey (Pictured right) after an overnight brine bath then slow smoked with Applewood turned out perfect! Picking at it well after dinner while cleaning up I was impressed how the white meat of the breast was still moist and juicy.

I was most thankful for the opportunity to spend another Thanksgiving with my lovely bride and three of my four children. I am also thankful and most grateful that after a nine month 4th deployment to Iraq my Army Sergeant Son was home with his lovely bride and my three grand babies. GOD Is Great!

Most of all, by the time all leftovers where divvied up my refrigerator this year is not overflowing with enough Thanksgiving holiday goodness to last me until Christmas!

Lastly, as the holiday season is officially upon us please keep all of our Men and Women in uniform and their families in your thoughts and prayers. As an Airman and now a father of a Soldier having spent many a holiday away from mine I know first hand how uplifting and comforting that acknowledgment of ones service, separation and sacrifice can be.

‘GOD Bless’

President Donald Trump made an unannounced visit to US troops in Afghanistan – his first time in the country – for the Thanksgiving holiday.
