Good Morning!

What’s on your schedule this weekend? We’re celebrating Thanksgiving....yes I can read a calendar, I was working last week and we as a family decided to celebrate today. I’m making my World Famous Dressing (it’s not world famous, we just call it that) I’ll post the recipe in the comments section. We also decided to not cook a turkey this year, we’re going to smoke a pork butt using the snake method linky. Reminder if you’re looking for sauces, marinades or rubs I recommend Admiral Big Gun Tailgate Master. Meanwhile, let’s carry on with our news and links open thread full of beer recommendations, nap strategies, crock pot and smoker recipes. Drop by for some fan wisdom, snark and enjoy the weekend, you have to go back to work on Monday, unless you’re me.

Again, we all know the rules, but in case someone is new:
-No discussion of politics or religion
-No feeding of the trolls
-Leave the gender hatred at the door
-Keep the bad language to a minimum (using the spoiler tags, if you must)
-Speaking of which, if discussing a newer show or movie, please use spoiler tags
-No pictures that could get someone fired or in serious trouble with their employer
-If you can’t disagree in a civil manner, feel free to go away
-While navigating the open thread, just assume it’s sarcasm.
With that, the beer light is on and the bar is open. Belly up & tie one on. Don’t forget to tip your waiter, and Welcome Aboard!
