It is that wonderful time of the year. Where we really flex our culinary skills. We have been packed with different events. The main event of this week was Thanksgiving dinner, then our annual Thanksgiving pie party. Thanksgiving dinner is a family thing that we do with Ryvers. They hosted this year and made a juicy turkey with all the trimmings.
After the Thanksgiving dinner we returned to the house and prepared for the pie party. This year we created 17 different pies. We did a lot of new pies this year which was a little challenging.
We have been smoking turkeys for several years. Something that we started in Bahrain when Stacy came to visit us. April is not a fan of turkey, but likes it smoked. This year I purchased a Weber Smokey Mountain smoker. It is still new and I am trying to still get the hang of it. It is really, really fun. This turkey got a great taste into it. I smoked it with apple and cherry wood.
So here are the pies. All 17 pies are here, with the pictures. I will let the pictures do the talking. They were great.
