NOAA National Weather Service reports: We will be in a persistently rainy pattern from now through Thanksgiving. It's not all bad news, though (unless you are a skier, in which case the news is mostly bad). Temperatures will be mild, with highs in the upper 50s to low 60s for the next several days. Snow levels will remain generally 8,000-10,000 feet, so travel over the mountain passes should be just fine.
No Thanksgiving is complete without high winds or torrential rains knocking out the power midway through your cooking. Here’s a tip I learned to keep dinner on schedule:
- Ham goes into oven. It’s cooked * already so you’re heating it up.
- 8-12 lb turkey gets rinsed, paper-towel dried, coated in olive oil with garlic, double-wrapped in heavy duty foil, then centered on the charcoal cooker above briquets divided into two separate mounds. Cover. Add 10-20more briquets to each pile after one hour. Cover again and cook one more hour. Done.
- Double the number of birds and charcoal cookers for a bigger crowd.
Fire up the grill Thursday just in case, and be a Thanksgiving Superhero.
Thanks to my late brother-in-law Billy, gone too soon to AIDS. I’m thankful for his expertise in hosting perfect parties, no matter what.
*According to LiveStrong: Look for pale meat in fresh hams and pink to dark pink meat in wet or dry-cured hams. ... The darker the color of the ham, the more likely it has been smoked or aged, two methods that produce hams that need no cooking.
