    I really meant to wish everyone here a Merry Christmas, or a Happy [whichever holiday you celebrate] but I got wrapped up in the moment (if you'll pardon the pun}. The kids kept me busy and I was hardly in the same room as the computer all day. Gifts were given and wrapping paper flew about like wind-blown snow. Fun was had.
    And then I was busy with giving one final Christmas gift to the family - the kind of Christmas dinner I grew up with at my grandmother's house:
    - roast duck with orange glaze (Grandma added wine, but I went with Grand Marnier.)
    - rye stuffing with sage and butter
    - fried potatoes (in fresh bacon grease)
    - Bavarian-style sauerkraut (with apples and a bit of cinnamon)
    - green beans with a German sweet & sour bacon sauce
    - noodles with a cream sauce made with pan drippings and black pepper
    And for dessert - marzipan stollen and apple strüdel.
    And glühwein to drink (by the adults of course, the kids had juice).
    The kids had hollow legs, but they after a while they finally seem stuffed. And there are very limited leftovers. Whew. That evening I just wanted to sit for a bit. I hope you all had much happiness and merriment, and knew at least one full day of peace. Wishing you all peace and love. A_W

    Happy Holiday to ALL!

    I had a 9.2 lb Turkey on the Grill. Offset side coals and water drip tray.

    Next time the brine I will make much weaker salt to water ratio. Better yet I may rig some kind of rotisserie so no brine necessary.
