Bring on the turducken.

It’s official: The Snook and I are making a turducken for Thanksgiving this year. (Though what with Thanksgiving not being an official holiday in Australia, we’re moving it to Saturday.) I’ve just posted a request for advice on AskMetaFilter. Anybody here ever made one? On a related note, this thing is supposed to feed, like, twenty-five people, so if you’re in Sydney and you’d like to help eat this beast and you’re not a total random, drop me a line.

  1. I’ve got one ordered for Christmas… The Milbank clan won’t know what’s hit em!

    Poultry heaven here we come!

  2. Wait, you can ORDER one of these in Australia? What the heck am I making one from scratch for then?! (And you guys are most definitely invited over to eat it, if you want to try one early.)

  3. I’ve always wanted to try that.

  4. Oh, but I just discovered that Australia does have Thanskgiving… although no one here knew about it, so apparently nobody cares.

  5. My father’s butcher in Adelaide makes them… And reportedly licked his lips at the thought of creating one. So my father says :O)

    But Kris, happy deboning 3 birds & making your stuffing. Hope your making a good stock from the bones for the Glaze… *drool*

  6. Oh, we’re not boning them! Bless the good butchers at the Broadway, who’ve offered to do it for free… 🙂

  7. Oh my freaking god. I will come as long as no one makes any canary jokes. And by saying that, inevitably, someone will.
    Kris, is there something american I can make and stuff up so you can laugh at me, or should I stick to something less responsible, such as dressing my dolls up like pilgrims and having them perform a thanksgiving play(do note, everything I know about thanksgiving I learnt from the television!).

  8. Yeah, I’ve seen that recipe before. (Somebody linked it in my Ask Metafilter thread.) Unfortunately if I turned our oven up to 500 degrees the resultant smoke would kill everyone in the neighborhood, which kinda puts a damper on the holiday mood… 🙂

    (And Helen, I’ll call you about the food. Can you handle salad? I’ve ordered ranch dressing!)
