Thanksgiving 11.24.2011

Thanksgiving this year again with friends but this year we did it a little bit different... Christine baked and made awesome sides, Rawls and I were the dueling turkey chefs and everybody este brought sides. Great great stuff. I have to say that my apple concentrate, brine and herbs brined turkey was as good as Rawls' smoked turkey. We had 13 people this year and we all had a great feast.
