But I also love the Holiday season, Thanksgiving and Christmas. In my mind, they are like a big, warm, fuzzy blanket that I can wrap up in and stay warm. I love the food, the traditions, the music, the lights, the fun and getting together with family.
Since 2008 I have been smoking our Thanksgiving turkey. I brine it, rub it and put it on the cooker. Then I watch the Thanksgiving Day parade with the family while eating breakfast and drinking coffee. We gather with friends and family, who all bring sides and extras, and sit down to a feast; smoked turkey, sweet potatoes, salad, green beans, apple pie, pumpkin pie and all kinds of other yumminess. Everyone helps to prepare it and clean up building relationships with our conversations and enjoying each other’s company.
