I would like to wish a very happy Thanksgiving to all our American members and their families on the Forum especially given the hell we have all suffered this past year.

Thank you! Pulled this off the smoker late last night. Spiral cut brown sugar glazed. Pay no attention to the burned drippings on the cookie sheet but listen to the crackling sound of pure smokey deliciousness.
Happy 400th Thanksgiving!

You have English settlers to thank for that, Jim (not the roast, of course, but the festival :haha: ). I suppose people often attribute it to the 'Founding Fathers', but I might be amongst the first to recognise that the 'Founding Mothers' certainly played their part!. I've gone all veggie lately, but thinking of Lloyd Bridges in 'Airplane', and looking at your roast, 'it wasn't a good week' to go all vegetarian. Hmm..that's more like semi-flexitarian, in my case, as I allow myself to yield to the odd meaty temptation. :wave:

I heard just yesterday that the Eastern US Native Americans/Indians who first joined a few Brits in a thanksgiving actually celebrated 18 thanksgiving feasts each year, coinciding with the harvests of various wild and cultivated fruits, vegetables, and meat. I'm all for more holidays, myself. :D I hope you all had feast-ivities with friends and/or family. Oh, I mean those of you in the UK, too. (Why not celebrate getting rid of a PITA colony who will only make iced tea in huge quantities. ;) ) I know many immigrants to the US from all over the world who celebrate holidays from the "old country" as well as the US. :clap: Get me another beer!

I’ll grab a brew for both of us and bring some leftovers as well. Down to some smoked ham and macaroni and cheese.
