Anyone who knows me even a little, knows I am one congenial bastard when it comes to the holidays. This Thxgvng (twitter spelling), I'm brining the bird, cooking the bird, and drinking beer while others in the home cook. So, here it is. I hunted for my bird near Weiland's today. I plopped it in a bag-lined box, topped it with brine (1/4 C salt and sugar/quart water) until it was swimming. It floats. It'll brine for a day and a half and then to the coals. Probably medium, indirect, cut and eat. Have an awesome frickin' day y'all.
