Actually, the drumsticks are partially deboned, only the tips are left (last 2 inches or so).

Generally, I de-bone them a day or two ahead of time, then make stock from the bones.

I also made a special insert for my roasting pan to hold it in shape (otherwise it'll end up looking like a pancake, due to the lack of bones)

Do you keep the skin on each bird? ANd if so, how does the skin get crispy if it's in the middle layer.

Long, slow cooking, 190F/90C for 12-13 hours!

Well, obviously the skin of the chicken and duck don't get crispy...

Re: Americans in CH- What are you doing for Thanksgiving?

Has anyone experienced a giant turkey being deep fried in a large vat outdoor fryer? I have a friend who does this in the US - along with deep-frying Twinkies!!

Quite scary, really

Re: Americans in CH- What are you doing for Thanksgiving?

This is also our first Thanksgiving and we don't have an oven in our flat. Instead, we are going out to dinner (which is a special occasion considering the $$ here).

I am sure whatever you end up cooking will be lovely. Good luck!

The one caveat is that I haven't found fresh or frozen lima beans here (and the ones in the jar taste a bit, well, like they're from a jar) so we use frozen soybeans instead. Available from your local Asian market.
Are they edamame beans? I love getting those in the pod. Steam them & toss in some coarse salt, and they are probably one of my favorite appetizers. So simple too...

HAHA!! He is originally from Alabama! Was quite shocking for us Cali folk to see him invest a ton of moola into his little setup. Have to say it was quite delicious but 2 lbs of oil & butter twice a year for T-Day and Xmas is enough

You haven't had anything until you've had fried butter! Supposedly a speciality at the Texas State Fair, which you will note is one of the 'red' states in KF's map...

Re: Americans in CH- What are you doing for Thanksgiving?

that map isn't even current. After I posted it I went to the CDC webpage. Obesity in the US has gotten so bad it's up to 34% in Mississippi.

Here is a nice graphic of how America has gotten fatter since 1985.

I find great irony in the fact that if you're a skinny person it's hard to find skinny clothes at Arkansas-based Wal-Mart. Most of their inventory is manufactured to go around "big boy" bellies, and sized "medium" so you still feel "petite".

Hey man, that's not really nice bringing up obesity when we're all glorying in thoughts about Thanksgiving feasts!!

Really, save it for a New Years Resolution thread or something!

I once bought a size 2 skirt at Banana Republic and it hung on my hips. Um, I usually wear size 6-8 so when I asked the clerk what gives, he said it's called "vanity sizing" whereby you think you're smaller than you actually are!

Re: Americans in CH- What are you doing for Thanksgiving?

Every year, CNN shows some spectacular footage of Fried Turkey mishaps. Like turkey rockets. It's amazing stuff.

Deep fried turkey in and of itself is not a cause of obesity. Can we please talk about Thanksgiving dinner without judging the obese. Thank you.

Hey, I'm not the one who brought up deep fried twinkies... but I sure can derail a topic and be a buzzkill when I want to be.

But... If you so much as lay a hand on the sweet potato caserole I'm going to cut your arm off with a Swiss Army Knife.

Them's my taters an' I'msa gonna eat 'em all up!!!!!

§337.40.95(C)(1)(a) of the Code states, "If the action of dismembering occurs on Thanksgiving Day in the defense of a precious posession, i.e. sweet potato caserole, then the assailant is absolved of the assault regardless of the weapon used. However, bonus points are awarded for the creative use of soup spoons and cheese ballers."
