Smoked turkey vs. oven-roasted turkey: Have It Your Way

Thanksgiving is the time when people favor traditions, whether it is in the side dishes that are served or what time the meal occurs to how should the turkey be prepared.

Two books that are available at the Sullivan University Library in Lexington give those celebrating the Thanksgiving feast unique and delicious ways to prepare both the turkey and the fixings.

How to Cook a Turkey and All the Other Trimmings by the editors of Fine Cooking magazine

The Butterball hotline may have some stiff competition with this how-to guide that has tips for purchasing and cooking a turkey and for fixing all of the sides and desserts. This book is available in the library, call number 641.6659 H847.

Cooking with Fire: From Roasting on a Spit to Baking in a Tannur, Rediscovered Techniques and Recipes that Capture the Flavors of Wood-Fired Cooking by Paula Marcoux

Fire is good according to author Paula Marcoux, and in her book she shares how to smoke a turkey. A smoked turkey certainly brings something a little unique to the Thanksgiving table. This book is available in the library, call number 641.58 M333c.

Both of these titles are available now, but as the Thanksgiving holiday approaches we can't guarantee that they will be here much longer. Stop by the library today and one of the librarians will be glad to assist you in locating one of these titles or any of the other titles highlighted this month.
