I mean personally, I like turkey enough that I buy a big 25 pounder even if I'm traveling for the holiday, and cook it so I get like 3-4 weeks of leftovers out of it (including soup).

@bamgrinus there is nothing quite like the feeling of having a 3 or 4 pound plate of leftover thanksgiving food to absolutely demolish in the name of gluttony laying on your couch with your dog.

@Coffandcig I'll do bacon tho don't get me wrong. I'm mostly full of shit.

Well, most poultry is lean, unless you're talking about duck. Not really too concerned with the fat content considering that it's usually served with gravy.
if you just want eat gravy and stuffing then why turkey in the first place...

halloween is short for 'all hallow's eve' or some such. it is the eve before a period of remembrance of the dead. so really there is already a halloween eve. imo your point still stands and maybe even more fun for being an eve of an eve, sort of like partying on thursday night

90% of cooking a turkey right is just not overcooking it. Spatchcocking it helps a lot, so it cooks more evenly. Otherwise you're doing shit like putting tinfoil over the breast. But I think a lot of people who normally don't cook much feel obligated to on Thanksgiving, and don't really know what they're doing. A chicken's gonna taste pretty damn dry too if you don't pull it from the oven until it's 190.
