B-r-r-r . . . It's Cold!


Elections are over.
Winter seems near.
Leaves nearly gone.
Branches are bare.
Ground is mushy, wet, leaf-covered, and cold.
Sun is dim and low in the sky.
Sky is gray and clouded, brooding and remote.
Summer is gone.
Frost covers all.


But . . .
November is a transition month.
Beautiful October may be over, but Christmas cheer is just around the corner.
We have a small space to celebrate our thankfulness.
We'll have lots of food.
Friends and family near.
Time to open up the fireplace.
Time to look forward to winter activities.
Time for a slower pace.

and . . .
time to kill all those pesky bugs.
time for hunting to begin.
time relax.
time to sweep all those leaves off the porch.
time to begin enjoying the fruits of your garden.
time to say words of love and thankfulness and caring.

Depending on how big the turkey is, for 25 lbs,at 160 degrees, I'd say about 5-5 1/2 hours.

Depending on size for a 12-14 pounder the answer would be 3 1/2 to 4 hours. Very large turkeys would take close around 5 hours. I guess I'll go with 3 1/2 to 4.
