Thanksgiving Menu

corby's picture

I'm not a huge believer in assigning things for people to bring to a pot luck. There are enough good cooks coming Thursday that I don't have to worry about 16 people bringing Pepperidge farm cookies.

Still, this time around is our biggest Thanksgiving ever, and possibly the most people I've ever tried to feed for a sit down dinner. And because I always forget some detail, it seems wise to start some sort of list. My major concern is with someone planning to bring something which requires significant stove or oven time, as that is at a premium. Please check with me about such things! I expect the smoker, grill, ovens and cooktop to all be in demand!


  • The Biggest Smoked Whole Turkey That Fits on My Smoker
  • Some Other Turkey, Possibly Deboned Whole, not Smoked.
  • Some Very Large Spinach Stuffed Turkey Breast on the Grill
  • Jen's Ham or Other Main Dish that Looked Good at Costco
  • Adam's Fancy-Schmancy Wild Caught Salmon on the Grill Last Minute
  • Brian & Carrie's Mystery Crockpot Meatballs
  • Maple Glazed Sweet Potatoes and Apples
  • Twenty Freakin' Pounds of Mashed Purple Potatoes
  • Blue Cheese Cabbage Slaw
  • Vinegar-Honey Glazed Carrots
  • Corn off the Cob by Special Request
  • Catherine's Rolls
  • Catherine's Cranberry Salad that Might Belong Below
  • Thjora's Pumpkin and maybe other Flavor Pies
  • Cosette's Big Pans of Artery Clogging Cheesecake or Similar
  • Evja's Applesauce Cake?

Things We Need
