If I'm not mistaken, those are beautiful red potatoes.  And I can tell just from the picture this is homemade gravy, too.  The whole meal looks killer!

Looks great!  When it comes to the Thanksgiving holiday I almost prefer Friday and Saturday because this is what I like to do with the leftovers.

The only thing that would make that meal better is a large sweet tea....

OK Chewie, This time I have to add a question about presentation.  I don't question the apparent quality of the product(s) involved, but Smoked Turkey (IMHO) is displayed as the traditional 'Slices of White and Dark Meat' with "some" gravy ladled over it on the bread/biscuit/roll. This presentation reminds me of the Turkey A La King of School Lunch Fame.
Perfect for a great lunch on a cold winter day, but lacking that Dr Smoke 'Pro-Touch' I see in your other introductions.
BTW. You sure attract some unusual feedback !

Problem was Al, we had those beautiful slices, the one pictured was for my consumption, and by then it was real leftovers, but I didn't feel right taking pictures of a customers platter before serving them. It was not a big bird, we got maybe 9 orders off it. it was a 1 time deal to see how much interest there was. That said, it was a great smokey flavor and really moist.
I'd love to buy one of the deep fat fryers that has the locking lid to deep fry a Turkey, if you ever tasted one you know how incredible they are!
I do appreciate the great feedback, it makes HAVING to consume the subject, all the better! Kati, my Photographer, didn't get this one!

Since the turkey is smoked, how do you make gravy without drippings? Are the drippings captured in the smoker?

I got a sweet tea here, that will put a big smile on your face, just thought I'd show a Blue Moxie.

Chicken base, poultry spices, chicken broth, some cornstarch to thicken, we also use the small amount of turkey juice created as it sits for 15 or so minutes, in a cooling pan.

Family does the Deep-Fried Turkey for holiday , It is a much better tasting bird (IMHO) than the traditional oven-roast.
I figured you had some reason for the disguise !

I have to ask, What does the Blue Moxie Taste like? I love the original, and despise the Diet-Original flavor. I have never seen the 'Blue' before you posted it a while back.

It's really very good, as good as Diet Moxie is bad, definite Cream Soda base taste with a hint of something else, Blueberry I suppose, it's a nice smooth flavor, I sell quite a bit of it, maybe because it's the only blue soda people have seen.

CTF....give this base a try... I'm pretty picky when it comes to bases...I buy the chicken and beef for work and  have used the turkey at home,,,,it's pretty good.
Prices are good, even with shipping..or you may be able to get it through your food service co.
